Abstract


The article describes the level of economic development of rural areas of Northern Poland and analyses the processes of internal (regional) convergence and divergence. To analyse convergence the divergence factor was used, and to assess the level of economic development - the synthetic Wojewodzic indicator. The evaluation uses the indices describing the level of unemployment, as well as entrepreneurship and the income level of the inhabitants.
