ABSTRACT
This study is a continuation of research on deeply disadvantaged areas, adding new elements to finalise a methodology in their treatment field. It also brings practical elements related to the individualisation of the main territorial discontinuities at the level of some problem areas for all the development regions of Romania. The basic hypothesis is that in the treatment process of deeply disadvantaged areas, knowing the gaps within them is of utmost importance. These gaps are highlighted by physiognomic, functional and especially by mental discontinuities. The indicators used and the amendment with qualitative indicators may lead to the individualisation of such discontinuities, which separates the very poor areas among the poor ones. Possessing such territorial partitions, the transition to their characterization and of insertion environment is easy, in order to assess the real possibilities of future development.
