Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to analyze changes in economic inequalities at the local (poviat) level in Poland by an empirical verification of the absolute β-convergence across poviats in the years 2004-2014. An alternative to GDP measure of a local development; called the aggregated index of an economic development; was used in the econometric analysis. The results indicate a decrease in the level of inequalities across poviats in Poland; but the β-convergence pace was very slow.
