Abstract: The complex socio-economic situation of the Polish rural areas and agriculture points to the need to reorient a significant part of the rural population, who should strive to undertake non-agricultural activities, mainly through self-employment. This study focuses on the issue of self-employment in rural areas. Since the early 1990s, the labour market in rural areas in Poland has undergone major political and economic changes. The purpose of this study is to explore the issue of self-employment as a form of entrepreneurship development in rural areas. This topic is presented as one of the elements of the labor market policy. In the research procedure, available secondary data were used, i.e. statistical data and the literature. Quantitative and qualitative analysis of self-employed persons from rural areas in Poland was also conducted. The presented data show a tendency towards positive changes in the group of self-employed persons from rural areas in the analyzed period.
