Introduction

Economic and demographic potential of Silesian Voivodeship causes that it is positively distinguished compared to other regions. It is one of the regions of Poland where unemployment  reaches one of the lowest levels; however, recent months have seen unfavourable trends in the local labour market, since a considerable increase in the number of the unemployed was observed in February 2011. Compared to the previous month, the number  of the registered unemployed in the voivodeship rose at the end of February by 5,335, thus increasing the unemployment rate to 201,519 people. This total number was a combination of very low (e.g. Rybnik powiat) and very high (Myszk ow powiat) unemployment rates. Sadly, one of the highest unemployment rates was observed in Czestochowa (14,605 people), which confirms difficult situation in the local labour market.
