Popis / Abstract:
The problem of unemployment in the Slovak Republic emerged in 1989 when the entire society entered the transition. It is therefore, a relatively new feature. Regional differences in the unemployment rate may reflect deep socio-economic differences between regions. The present study examines the contribution of the unemployment structure, that of the economically active population, education and age of the population to the regional differences in unemployment rate in selected districts of north-eastern Slovakia.
Correlation and linear regression were used to analyse the relationship between the selected socio-economic indicators and the district unemployment rate. Analyses indicated a significant association between the selected socio-economic indicators and the regional unemployment rate. The explained variance of the model was 53.8%; evidently, the strongest contribution is attributable to the proportion of population moving out of the district in search for jobs, the proportion of long-term unemployed (more than 12 months), the proportion of economically active inhabitants and the age structure of the population.
The results of the study identified the risk groups within the population of districts with high unemployment rates and some selected socio-economic factors as important contributors to the district unemployment rate.
