Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This article, devoted to the issue of non-agricultural economic activity in rural areas, reports upon the last statistical data, as well as material obtained by way of field study. Successive sections acquaint the reader with the contemporary functional structure of rural areas, the areas in which non-agricultural business are concentrated, the development of new functions in the countryside and factors favouring this development. The summary notes that Poland's period of transformation brought a dynamic development of activity of the above kind, albeit one that has not yet been able to make up for the earlier closedown of state-owned or cooperative enterprises. - (BJ)
