Abstract

The aim of the paper is to evaluate accessibility levels to various facilities such as employment, education, shopping, health care, finance, administration, culture and leisure, in rural Poland. Accessibility is interpreted at the local scale and at a personal level, i.e. in terms of people's ability to reach certain functions. The study has four dimensions, between which the data were manipulated: (1) 3 study areas embracing 31 villages; (2) 5 social categories; (3) 22 facilities; and (4) car-using and non-car using groups. Selected conclusions on proportion of area's population with access to specific facilities is portrayed. - (DG)
