This report dealt with co-operatives, primarily agricultural ones, in the Sisak-Moslavina County. The basic assumption is that founding different co-operatives, especially in the under-developed parts of Croatia, can affect the economic growth of the region. Consequently it could increase the living standard and influence positively on the demographic recovery of our country. While working on this report the methods of field interviewing and the Internet questionnaires were used. An employee of the Croatian Co-operative Alliance has been interviewed, while the questionnaires have been sent to 23 different addresses (both the Internet and the usual ones). There were 14 responses. Field work was done in the area of the town Petrinja and Velika Ludina region. The survey shows that the role of the existing co-operatives is not so essential for the development of the surveyed area. In spite of these facts they positively influence the economic and demographic development of the area where they are placed. To conclude, co-operatives could help in the economic turn off of the Sisak-Moslavina County, thus helping in the renewal and development of the area devastated in the recent war. But in the end their further development will depend on the local community attitude towards this issue.
