EU Cohesion Funds are designed to support less developed regions in overcoming development obstacles. In order to address them correctly the identification of the main barriers of rural development in specific regions of Poland is crucial. The objective of the paper is to present the quantitative method of their identification. Factor analysis is used to determine the main obstacles of rural development on the example of north-western region.
