What does one need to do to get database of regional resilience indicators? "Step-by-step" approach.

Rok vydání: 2021



The aim of the paper is to clarify the “step-by-step” approach for setting and creating the database needed for further study of resilience and thus answer the question of what needs to be done to obtain a database of regional resilience indicators.Through a systematic and comparative analysis of the literature, a comprehensive analysis of regional resilience in terms of theory and practice is performed, structural aspects of regional resilience are identified and factors corresponding to the capacity of regional resilience are presented. Based on the performed analysis and procedures, a database of 40 composite indicators was created to assess the resilience of the Czech region at the NUTS 2 level for the period 2000-2019 from the original 75 indicators based on correlation analysis, the results of which respect economic theory.
