Abstract

There are 26 different ethnic communities living in Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, of which Croats take fourth place, after Serbs, Hungarians and Slovaks. Croats in Vojvodina are considered as indigenous population and greatest number moved here in 16th and 17th Century because of Turkish wars on Balkan. This thesis will analyze demographic trends of Croats in Vojvodina from 1900 till 2011 throughout historical, demographic and political factors. The main assignment and aim of this thesis is to demonstrate demographic reality and position of Croats in Vojvodina according to the last Census in 2011. The picture of spatial distribution of Croats was obtained after conducting demographic analysis. The study shows that Croats are dispersed minority, since they live in all Counties in Vojvodina. The study also shows there are two different sides, Sjevernobački okrug (county) as county with greatest number of Croats living there and counties in Banat with least Croats living there. It was noticed further that most dominant demographic processes amongst Croats in Vojvodina are total depopulation and disturbed biological composition with clear trend of demographic aging.
