Abstract: The article addresses the measurement and identification problems covering particular social and economic areas (referred to as functions) in the regions of the country, based on the employment structure analysis and assessment by the sectors of the economy. The Herfindahl-Hirschman index was applied to measure sectoral concentration and Florence’s coefficient of localization to determine regional functional specialization. Finally, cluster analysis was conducted to produce the functional typology of regions.
