Summary/Abstract: This paper treats of relation between the level of regional economic efficiency and the level of regional innovation potential in the Czech Republic. It is one of more steps, that back the drift up, which has to be to verify the hypothesis: “Weak regional innovation potential is the cause of regional economic backwardness”. That is closely linked with ability of absorbing business support programs by regions and the possibility of its measuring. Not only that was investigated within the frame of Ministry for Regional Development ČR research project No. WD-30-07-1 entitled as „Innovative approach to the solving of disparities at regional level“. More methodologies are presently used by some subjects in the Czech Republic for valuation of regional economic efficiency level. Two methodologies were identified for valuation of regional innovation potential’s level in the Czech Republic and their outputs availability differs. The goal of this article was to compare two groups of data gained from specific resources, and to investigate the statistical dependence between regional economic efficiency and regional innovation potential level in the Czech Republic with help of suitable statistical method.
