Special attention is devoted to population processes and related phenomena. Besides generally acceptable statistical data, other data collected during field research in communes representing suburban and peripheral areas was used. The results of field research were also a basis of verification for general conclusions. The main conclusion of the paper is that the period of the last fifteen years has widened the gap in terms of economic and demographic development between both types of analysed areas. The dynamic development of rural areas located close to cities was accompanied by a very slow development or even stagnation of the peripheral regions.
