Relations between incomes and expenditures on food of Polish households - regional perspektive
The article assesses the economic condition of households in a time frame view (2000-2016) in the light of income and expenditure (including food expenditure) on an all-Poland scale. It compares selected relations of these categories and indicates the economic health of the households in different regions of Poland. It has been assumed, as a point of reference, that polarisation of the analysed variables is dependent on the geographical area of residence. The data from the research on household budgets performed by GUS was used. A comparative analysis shows that despite the significant improvement in the financial status of households, there are still serious regional disparities. Especially The Eastern region is adversely marked in this respect.
