The application of spatial taxonomic measure of development (pTMD) in analysis of the labour market


  • Michal Bernard Pietrzak

    () (Nicolaus Copernicus University, Poland)


The theme of the paper is focused on the application of spatial taxonomic measure of development (pTMR) while analysing the labour market in Poland. The need for the use of a spatial taxonomic measure of development is related to the fact that most economic phenomena are characterized by positive spatial dependence. This necessitates the inclusion of this dependence in spatial economic analyses. The article analyses the labour market in 66 subregions (NUTS 3) in 2012. The study allowed us to assess the situation on the labour market and identify the trends in its development.
