Abstract | Full Text

The purpose of the article was to carry out the classification of cities in Poland, taking into account their competitiveness measured by expenditures. The subject of the study were all cities with powiat rights in Poland. Data for the study came from the local database from 2016 and related to the expenditure of cities on culture and protection of national heritage, environmental protection, social assistance, housing, tourism and on transport and communication. In the article was used Ward’s method which is applied in hierarchical cluster analysis. The results of this study showed that the majority of cities with powiat rights made similar expenditures on socio-technical infrastructure. The most competitive cities were Sopot and Warsaw, which spent the highest amounts on socio-technical infrastructure and, at the same time, the lowest expenditure on social assistance.
