Summary/Abstract: The aim of the paper is the statistical analysis of the determinants of regional diversification of wages in the Polish counties between 2003 and 2009. According to the efficiency wages model of Solow (1979) and Summers (1988) and neoclassical models of economic growth of Solow (1956), Nonneman, Vanhoudt (1996) and optimal control model of Lucas (1988) the level of the relative wages are determined by the unemployment rates and the relative labor productivity. The descriptions of regional diversification of wages and its determinants are described. Additionally, the simple theoretical model of regional diversification of wages is constructed and the parameters of this model were estimated. These are the estimations of the wage function for 379 counties and 16 voivodeships in Poland.
