Transport Infrastructure in Poland in the Years 2006–2015

Conference paper
Part of the Springer Proceedings in Business and Economics book series (SPBE)

Abstract

Transport infrastructure is an economic category associated with socio-economic development both at the macro- and micro-economic levels. The aim of this article is to diagnose the condition of transport infrastructure in each region of Poland between the years 2006 and 2015, and the separation of clusters of voivodeships with a similar level of development of transport infrastructure. Indexes which describe the condition of infrastructure in Polish voivodeships were selected and then subjected to statistical analysis (descriptive statistics, correlation analysis, examining changes in rates over two separate years with the use of the Wilcoxon signed-rank test). Next, the selected indexes were analysed taxonomically, which facilitated the identification of regions with well-developed transport infrastructure and those with the greatest need of investment.
