The objective of the paper is to present social and occupational changes in small towns in the Swietokrzyskie Voivodeship in regard to their accessibility to communication with larger towns in the examined area. Because of the availability of statistic data for the analysis, the time period from 1995 to 2004 was selected. Answers to the following question were looked for in the paper: - is there an interdependence between the directions of the occurring social and occupational changes (a change in the number of inhabitants, changes in internal migrations, changes in the employment structure) in small towns of the Swietokrzyskie Voivodeship and their accessibility to communication with larger towns (exceeding five thousand inhabitants) in the examined area. A network of towns in the Swietokrzyskie Voivodeship, in the form in which it functions since 1999 is examined.
