Major cities by numbers. The latest data on the largest Polish cities

“Major Cities in Numbers” is a periodic statistical publication prepared by the Center for Analysis and Research of the Association of Polish Cities. The publication presents analyzes of current socio-demographic phenomena in 12 UMP cities and their metropolitan areas through the prism of official statistics.

How many Polish cities and municipalities are there?

This is valuable data, describing 12 cities with county rights and 12 metropolitan areas, which together make up more than 500 municipalities. This accounts for 20% of all Polish communes, and characterizes much of the country.

The data referred to in “Metropolis in Numbers” can be used to plan local strategies, report on the situation in the region, monitor the level of implementation of activities or the operation of cities centered around megacities. At the same time, this is the only analysis available as an urban publication.

On the one hand, the handout provides a descriptive analysis of a specific topic related to the performance of UMP cities and their inhabitants (the “subject in focus”).

On the other hand, in a biannual cycle, it presents the most recent basic demographic and socio-economic data for each of the UMP cities and their metropolitan areas (“Capital Statistics”). The data presented makes it possible to monitor the trends of fundamental changes related to population, market, entrepreneurship and housing.

The main changes that have taken place in the largest Polish cities

In the first issue of the Bulletin, the main results of the National Population and Housing Census 2021 were examined in 12 cities: Bialystok, Bydgoszcz, Gdansk, Katowice, Krakow, Lublin, Łódź, Poznań, Rzeszow, Szczecin, Warsaw and Wroclaw. The main changes that have taken place in the largest Polish cities since the previous census in 2011 are described, namely:

  • population increase in large cities,
  • the gradual aging of the population,
  • Housing construction development.
