Identification of relationships between economics of (rural) municipalities and their characteristics.

Methodology, assumptions, sources:

The research will be based on municipal financial reports (consolidated budget, balance sheet) and related financial indicators (especially the System of informative and monitoring economic indicators of the municipality published by The Ministry of Finance). Demographic, social and other characteristics of municipalities will be utilised as well.

Municipalities will be compared within the scope of different categories (social or demographic characteristics, rural/city, remote/suburban) and the comparison will be based on average values in particular categories. Other statistical approaches (correlation analysis, cluster analysis etc.) will be used too, if necessary.

A refinement of methodology and setting of hypotheses will be based on a literature review. Data availability is the critical condition for the successful realization of the research.

Outputs and their use:

Identification of the characteristics influencing municipalities´ economics

Paper in a peer review journal

Participation on a national conference (Eurorural or Agrární perspektivy)
