income inequalities, categories and risk subcategories, identification, low-income households, low-income communes, Slovakia

The aim of this study is to identify and analyse low-income communes in Slovakia. The basic means for such identification is an indirect method, which uses characteristics of differentiated income levels based on occurrence of observed risk subcategories in order to identify territories with low-income population. Relevant statistical data about household income from Microcensus 2002 and the 2001 Census of Population and Housing data are used for this identification. Such data are available for all communes in the country. Based on the summarized “risk” values, 269 of the total 2 883 communes in Slovakia are identified as communes with low income. Although this share of communes with extremely low income represents only 9.3 %, the obtained results also indicate that the population’s income is low in the prevailing part of the communes. The identified communes are situated in marginal territory of southern and eastern Slovakia.

social stratification, profile of society, regional differentiation, households income categories, Slovakia

The paper is the first attempt to assess the development and the present situation (essential traits and nature) of the social structure and stratification in the Slovak geographical literature. The theory and methods involved in the study of social stratification and the development in Slovakia after 1989 are dealt with. Spatial aspects of the phenomenon were given the principal significance. Processing of the Microcensus data from 2003 led to the elaboration of profiles of regional societies in Slovakia and identification of their main characteristics. Based on the geographical analysis of the income distribution of households and construction of regional profiles we obtained an overview of social stratification at the level of the individual administrative regions of Slovakia.

reproductive behaviour, family behaviour, spatial differentiation, regional typology

The deep political and economic changes of 1989 in Slovakia were followed by those in reproductive and family behaviour of population. They found reflection above all in the fertility, natality, nuptiality, divorce, abortion levels and consequently in the level of the natural increase and reproduction rates. Comparable developmental changes are also observed at the level of districts although the pace of changes is not the same in all districts. The aim of this study is to capture differences in the reproductive and family behaviour of population in Slovakia after 1989 from both, the temporal and spatial points of view (level of districts). Apart from the analysis of spatial and temporal differences in partial processes of the reproductive and family behaviour, the intent was to offer a comprehensive assessment accompanied by delimitation of relatively complex types of regions where the behaviour was studied.
