Abstract. We find it interesting and useful to examine regional differences in labor force and here we focus on the comparison of regional differences in Slovakia and Czech Republic, the countries that are very close in terms of population mentality and way of life. A significant share of highly skilled labor force in both countries in question leaves homes, thus external migration. Labor force is beginning to be a serious problem for both economies. In this study our objective is to evaluate and compare regional differences in labor force migration in Czech Republic and in Slovak Republic. We used the questionnaire method with a random selection of respondents. Further, we used descriptive statistics and our hypotheses have been evaluated by means of chi-square method. We have found that attitudes differ considerably between the respondents in Czech Republic and Slovakia.
