Summary/Abstract: The knowledge of processes of the functioning of the economy and its changes is indispensable for the prevention and solution of conflicts and for the control and determination of tendencies in their further development. This work aims at the determination of changes of the employment structure and the relations between these changes and the level of socioeconomic development in Poland. The particular goals are: changes of the degree of complexity of the employment structure in Poland in 1960-2014; the impact of changes of the analysed structures on the stability of the system in the spatial perspective; the relation between the complexity of the structure and changes of the stability of the system, and the level of the socioeconomic development. The analysis used a non-metric measure of the similarity of structures, i.e. the cosine of the angle between the vectors representing structures in an n-1 dimensional space. The research was carried out on the basis of an analysis of changes of the employment structure in Poland. It was determined that in all the sets of structures under analysis, the degree of complexity was markedly increasing. At the same time, an analysis of the changes of the degree of similarity of provincial structures to the structure of Poland showed a spatial similarity, which in compliance with the adopted definition is tantamount to an increase in stability. In this way it was shown that the increasing complexity of the observed structures was accompanied by a growing stability of the system. It was also confirmed that there exists a clear positive relation between a degree of diversification of structures, and the level of socioeconomic development.
