Summary/Abstract: The Delphi method, which is a kind of expert survey in which intuitive judg-ments of experts are treated as a final contribution to the formulation of the vision of the fu-ture is often used in foresight studies. One of the stages of the Delphi method are repeated surveys on the same group of experts using the Delphi questionnaire containing theses and challenge questions. In this paper the use of association rules in the analysis of the results of Delphi have been presented, in particular in the context of comparing the results of several rounds of testing. Association rules allowed us to find compounds in the responses of ex-perts concerning evaluation of significance of the theses. The article is based on data ob-tained through the Delphi survey carried out within the project Mazovia Economic Infor-mation Center. The study was conducted in two rounds among representatives of 120 com-panies located in Mazovia Region.
