Social and economic potential in the economy is a very important category. Potential can be seen at varying degrees of aggregation in the economy, as well as to various entities, participants in economic life. Social and economic potential is a multidimensional category. It is difficult to clearly determine whether quantified. However, in the literature there are many publications relating to the measuring the potential or elements which form it.
The studies that refer to it are e.g. (Schumpeter 1960), (Łuniewska at all. 2001), Dwilińska 2005), (Młodak 2006), (Mackiewicz at all. 2006), (Nagiełło 2006), (Krawczyk 2007), (Lubińska at all. 2007), (Nermend 2008, 2009), (Dylewski at all. 2004, 2011), (Wiśniewski 2011), (Kopyściański i in. 2013), (Filipiak i in. 2016 (in print))
The main goal of the paper is analysis and assessment of socio-economic potential of the West Pomeranian poviats. The analysis included a group of factors that have an impact on the socio-economic potential. The shape of socio-economic potential (capacity) is determined by:
The statistical analysis within groups of potential factors was conducted during the study, that allowed to refer to the similarities and/or differences between them. Moreover, based on the designated measures it was also possible to assess the factors in terms of their statistical quality. Knowledge of the potential factors is important from the analysis of socio-economic potential of local government units point of view. But in these scope arises many questions e.g.: how to measure the potential? what kind of factors are the most useful in these process? or what methods are the most useful in measurement process? The measurement of potential is not easy. But in these scope arises many questions e.g.: how to measure the potential? what kind of factors are the most useful in these process? or what are the most useful methods in process of measurement the potential? The measurement of potential is not easy. In literature is leading a discussion in these scope. In the paper, in the process of measuring the potential were used selected measures from the field of multivariate analysis. The study was conducted in the following stages:
Adopted study design made it possible to know the socio-economic potential of the West Pomeranian Province from different perspectives:
The analysis in this approach has allowed to observe changes over time in the analyzed period. In the study were used annual data for poviats from the Statistical Office.
