DISPARITIES AMONG REGIONS OF THE VISEGRAD GROUP COUNTRIES

Abstrakt:

Regional disparities among countries and its measurement is an important topic in the frame of enlarged European Union. We can identify several approaches and methods of measurement and evaluation of disparities between states and regions at Visegrad group countries level. The methods differ in structure of using indicator of disparities and ways of their processing. The aim of the paper is to apply specific model of composite weighted aggregate index of regional disparities in the case of Visegrad group countries. In the theoretical part are briefly described various procedure of construction of Composite Indicator, their advantages and disadvantages. The construction of this aggregated indicator is based on the application of more complex and multidimensional statistical methods.
