The article focuses on social changes and economic transformations that occurred in the years 2000-2010 in the community of Michałowice. The first part presents an analysis of socio-economic changes in the studied area. This includes the discussion of demographic trends in Michalowice within the studied 10 years, because this was the period of continual growth of population density in villages of the Małopolskie region. Afterwards, the article presents a dynamic analysis of economic indices related to unemployment, population growth rate, economic load, demographic ageing and the dynamics of economic units in the researched area. The first part of the article also includes data on population structure, i.e. gender and economic age groups, in Michałowice. Population growth in this area is accompanied by intensified building developments. The study of this trend was based on the analysis of the number of building permits, total community area planned for building development and the number of new residential buildings. The second part of the paper evaluates the level of technical infrastructure in Michałowice compared to other communities in the Krakow district based on a comprehensive index analysis.
