Regional development is a new concept aimed at boosting and diversifying economic activities, stimulating private sector investment, contributing to reducing unemployment, and ultimately improving living standards. In order to be able to apply the regional development policy, eight development regions have been set up, covering the entire territory of Romania. Each development region comprises several counties. Developments regions are not territorial administrative units do not have legal personality, being the result of a free agreement between county and local councils. The main objectives of regional development policy are: to reduce existing regional imbalances, with a focus on stimulating balanced development and revitalizing disadvantaged areas; to prevent new imbalances; correlation with governmental sector development policies; stimulating inter-regional, domestic and international cooperation that contributes to economic development and is in line with the legal provisions and the international agreements concluded by Romania. The paper tries to capture the interregional inequalities and convergence of the population number indicator, total, sex and average. For this purpose, two representative coefficients were used in the analysis of regional disparities, namely: Ginny coefficient and concentration coefficient, the results of the analysis being analyzed further.
