FEŘTROVÁ, M., TEMELOVÁ, J. (2011): Prostorová specifika strukturální nezaměstnanosti na úrovni obcí v České republice. Sociologický časopis/Czech Sociological Review, 47, č. 4, s. 681-715.
The article analyses spatial differences in unemployment according to the demographic features and attained education of job-seekers at the municipal level in the Czech Republic between 2005 and 2010. The article attempts to examine whether significant spatial disparities can be identified in the socio-demographic features of job applicants in order to detect disadvantaged localities in terms of specific structural unemployment concentration. The article is based on a statistical analysis of the database of the structure of job applicants maintained by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. The research demonstrated that attained education and qualifications are the key factors behind the spatial differentiation of unemployment at the microlevel, while gender and age are only secondary factors.
