J. P. LeSage and R. K. Pace have proposed Matrix Exponential Model (MESS) in 2007. A spatial autoregressive process, in the conventional specification, has been replaced by a matrix exponential transformation connected with a spatial weight matrix. This alternative has a computa- tional advantage. The article will present an analysis of the unemployment rate in Poland in 2007 by means of MESS. Spatial approach to modeling of this process will be justified by previous research of the spatial autocorrelation. A connection between the unemployment and other economic processes will be examined in order to construct a hypothetical model. Finally, MESS and regression model will be compared. The confrontation of the results will show that spatial dependence should be taken into consideration in the analysis of economic proc- esses.
