MetadataShow full item record
This research aims to show how the use of land and water resources in Poland compares to other selected economies. It starts with a narrative literature review of related issues in economic research. The main empirical part of the comparative analysis considers the following geographical areas: three largest European economies (Germany, France, and the United Kingdom), four Visegrad Group countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia), the world (average), and high-income countries (average). The separate comparative overview of the fishing industry is based on a different set of countries due to data availability. For the final part of the study, Pearson’s r correlation matrix and five ordinary least squares linear regression models are constructed. The dependent variable is the gross national income (GNI) per capita and 18 selected independent variables are relevant to the use of land and water resources. The models are based on cross-sectional data and their sample size depends on the regressors used (ranges from 82 to 149).
