Abstract: In the conditions of globalization processes, the polarization of local development deepens. Environmental resources, infrastructure, financial capital, etc, should be mentioned among the factors that maintain this diversity. The process of an individual's activity or its development takes place in many spheres of the internal and external environment. They are interdependent and should be considered together. The purpose of the poviats' activity is to provide the best conditions for the functioning and development of the local community. The implementation of this objective requires ensuring a constant inflow of funds necessary to finance the appropriate level of public goods and services necessary to meet the needs of these communities and development projects. The aim of the study is to assess the level of local disproportions in the financial situation of the poviats of the Eastern Poland macro-region by means of a synthetic measure. 101 poviats were the research subjects. The source material was data from the Local Data Base of the Central Statistical Office (for 2010, 2012 and 2016). The synthetic measure is intended to support the decision-making process of local government units. In the analyzed period, the best units were the poviat of Kielce, Olsztyn and Krosno, while the weakest were the city of Chełm, Elbląg and Mrągów poviats. Poviats changed their position in time and space.
