Rok, strany: 2012, 3 - 27
Lodz, Poland, socio-economic changes, system transformation
The author’s main aim is to define the most important demographic, social, economic and functional changes which took place in Lodzas a result of the political and economic transformation in Poland after 1989. The article is based on the statistical data obtained from the Central Statistical Office (Główny Urząd Statystyczny – GUS), as well as on the materials and information gathered at Lodz institutions and firms. The author shows that the transformation led to a serious demographic crisis in Lodzand, consequently, to a strong depopulation of the city. The transformation also affected elements of the social structure, such as education. After 1989, the city started to suffer from mass unemployment. The predominant functions changed as well; processes of deindustrialization and function succession are evident. The structure of industry changed considerably, as did the ownership system; services developed. At the end of the article the author presents a synthetic model of the socio-economic transformations in Lodz, as well as the development prospects for the city.
