Abstract: Counteracting the phenomenon of poverty is one of the tasks of public administration units. Various tools and instruments, as part of numerous programmes financed by public funds, are used to fight poverty, but their implementation should be preceded by a reliable analysis of the effects arising after their application. This is not easy, because the phenomenon of poverty is very complex, it results from the arrangement of many interrelated elements, and the effects of the actions taken are visible only after a longer period of time. Therefore, to predict these effects, it is necessary to use a method that can cope with the complexity of the poverty phenomenon in dynamic terms. Such a method, in the opinion of the authors, is a computer simulation. The aim of the article is to present the concept of a computer simulation model to study the impact of public intervention on poverty at the local, regional and national levels.
