Reduction of regional disparities and securing equal conditions of living for the population belong to the fundamental targets of regional policies both within the limits of European Union community and of Czech Republic. Assessment of changes in the progress of regions presents a comparatively complex task since a large number of indicators have to be taken into question, both those collected objectively (usually of quantitative shape) as well as those reflecting the subjective views of the population. The paper aims at assessment of changes in the sizes of regional disparities over 2005–2010 in the CR regions and it offers a discussion on chances of application of the aggregated indicators for such assessment.
