Abstract

The paper explores the demographic development of the Brodsko-Posavska County from 1857 until 2011. Emphasis is placed on population trends and the development of the ethnic structure of the County which are conditioned by historical events and socio-economic development. The methodology used in the writing of this paper is census and scientific literature analysis, resulting in numerical data as the basis for included graphs and tables. Thus, the number of inhabitants of the Brodsko-Posavska County grew except for the 1880, 1921 and 2011 censuses, when a decrease was noted due to economic causes in the late 19th century, World War I casualties and the demographic aging of the population, apparent in the 2011 age-sex structure. The ethnic structure is very diverse throughout the observed period, since the County area is populated by inhabitants of various nationalities, but still homogeneous due to a large percentage of the majority Croatian population. Due to different historical, social and economic factors, the number of members of certain nationalities varied in the Brodsko-Posavska County.
