Radomyśl Wielki is a small urban center of an agricultural district that focuses on fruits and vegetables and that is near natural gas fields. The gmina of Radomyśl Wielki, which includes the town itself and associated villages, is 159.8 square kilometers in size (61.7 square miles); that area is home to over 13,000 people (the 2001 population was 13,668), with 2,769 people living in the town proper. The educational system of this urban-rural community consists of 12 podstawowe (primary schools), przedszkołe (preschools), a gimnazjum (middle school), a general liceum (high school), and an agricultural high school.
