The main objective of the paper was to visualize and analyze the relationships between
selected economic and environmental indicators in the waste management system of Slovakia, i.e.,
the amount of fees for municipal waste in individual districts of Slovakia in 2019 and the amount of
average monthly wage and unemployment in Slovakia in the same year. Data were visualized and
analyzed on a thematic map and in a boxplot, and subsequently, they were subjected to statistical
testing. Based on the performed analysis, we can confirm the statistical relationship between the
average wage and the amount of fees for municipal waste collection and the statistical relation
between the municipal waste fee and the unemployment rate in individual districts of Slovakia.
