Abstract

The map and the accompanying description present the variability of revenues and the spatial distribution of the corporate headquarters of the 2000 largest companies registered in Poland as of 2013, excluding banks. The study demonstrated a strong concentration of the decision-making and control functions in Warsaw. It found variability depending on the type of activity and ownership. The study also confirmed previous findings about economic management models and their links to the administrative and settlement hierarchy (Śleszyński 2002, 2007).
