Abstract: The article presents initial results of studies on changes in the model of a household in Poland. The analysis was carried out on census- and microcensus- -based information on households published by Central Statistical Office. Empirical material was made comparable through its aggregation from the point of view of variants of household characteristics adopted in the census of 1960. It was found that up to 1984 there was a constant decrease of the average size of a household in Poland, both in towns and villages. In 1984 an increase in the average size of such a household was noted. Distribution of households as to their size was for Poland in years 1960, 1970 and to a smaller degree in 1974, a left-sided asymetrie distribution, i.e. in general, larger households prevailed over average-sized households. In 1978, distribution of households as to their size was for Poland a close- -to-symmetric distribution. In 1984 a left-sided asymmetry appeared again, though weaker than in 1960 and 1970. Distribution of village households as to their size was always a well-marked left-sided distribution, though weaker in 1978. Distribution of city households as to their size in 1960 was a right-sided asymmetric distribution. In 1970, like in 1974, distribution of city househholds as to their size was close-to-symmetric. In 1978 left-sided asymmetry can be observed; it becomes greater in 1984. Changes occuring in the analysed period in the structure of the households from the point of view of professional activity of their members, both for Poland in general as well as with the distinction between cities and villages, appeared to be even more diversified, i.e. they did not show any distinct uniformdirection.
