  • The article provides an estimation of economic processes, which took place in Ukrainian regions in 2006-2013, carried out within different types of economic activity and by means of the gross value added indicator (GVA). In order to conduct such research, we calculated both the rate of change in the share of regional economies’ structural mass and the intensity of structural changes in the economy of Ukrainian regions over the mentioned period. Having systematized and analyzed the existing methodological approaches, we grouped the regions according to the development intensity of different types of economic activity and Ukraine’s economy in general. Thus, we were able to specify the leading, stable, troubled and depressed regions of Ukraine. Finally, we highlighted the major structural imbalances in economies of these regions and made several suggestions concerning ways of their reduction and elimination in every specific region type.
