Note: The values in this table represent the mean calculated for the municipalities. That is why these values might be different from the values quoted in statistical annuals, where they are calculated for the entire population in the country. The reason for using the means for municipalities rather than the national average is that it gives us a local perspective. The great majority of the Polish gminy are rural whereas the national statistics are biased towards the urban areas where most of the population lives. Our method allows better to observe a considerable territorial differentiation in living conditions in Poland.

^ Note: Lomzynskie is the old province that included Lomza Gubernia. On January 1, 1999, Poland's 49 provinces were consolidated into 16. All but 3 of them were given new names. Most of the former Lomza Gubernia (including Radzilow) is now in Podlaskie Province.
