Abstract
Wraz z wejściem Polski do Unii Europejskiej szczególnego znaczenia nabierają Europejskie Fundusze Strukturalne. Procedura przygotowania wniosku o pomoc finansową z tych funduszy zawiera szereg kolejnych etapów, w tym ewaluację i monitoring. Dla poszczególnych przedsięwzięć zachodzi konieczność budowy i zastosowania konkretnych miar statystycznych jako ilościowych aspektów badania. W artykule zaprezentowano ogólną charakterystykę Europejskich Funduszy Strukturalnych, źródła informacji statystycznych dla potrzeb polityki strukturalnej oraz rodzaje indykatorów mogących znaleźć zastosowanie w realizacji konkretnych przedsięwzięć strukturalnych Unii Europejskiej. (abstrakt oryginalny)

One of the key policies is a common regional policy, oriented at narrowing the gap between levels of economic development of various regions. This gap may constitute an obstacle in the process of integration and harmonious development of the whole European Union. This policy is, on one hand, an expression of the existing noble principles of solidarity and partnership in the EU and on the other hand the result (as it seems) of the adopted strategy of development, preventing from excessive concentration of economic activity. Such a concentration has an unfavourable influence, not only on relatively pauperized and often depopulated peripheral regions, but in the long term it also results in negative effects the central, highly industrialized regions, due to growing problems with transport infrastructure, pollution, etc. General objective of this policy is the improvement of situation in poorer regions or in regions where the development needs are most explicit. By means of influencing the allocation of resources appropriate for investments, the policy promotes economic growth in backward regions and at the same time, it does not contribute to growth of consumption. It should be also pointed out that financial transfers from the EU budget should not lead to the decrease of structural expenditures incurred by Member States. Upon granting structural help, the principle of additionality is in force which means that the structural help supplements only domestic resources appropriate for structural support by beneficiary regions or states.
