Summary, in English

Degraded and restituted towns constitute an important element of the contemporary settlement system in Poland. This significance stems from two basic facts: firstly, the relatively large number of such places, and, secondly, the role of restituted towns within the formal-legal dimension of urbanization. The importance of degraded and restituted towns is also shown in the variety of topics undertaken in the individual chapters of this book. The aim of this chapter, in the context of the previous ones, is to provide a summary of statistical data related to the history and status quo of degraded and restituted towns. An important element of this chapter is a series of tables displaying indicators of current-day levels of ‘urbanity’ of degraded and restituted towns. The chapter constitutes a comprehensive data base that can be useful for future studies on the topic. For reasons of manageability, the data have been restricted to the borders of current-day Poland.
