In the thesis the current administrative-territorial organization of Osijek-Baranja county is analyzed, with a brief review on its historical development. By using various qualitative and quantitative criteria and hierarchy in functional meaning of all units of local self-government of this county, it was found that in the county exists one local unit which contains a settlement of the macroregional center degree, six local units with settlements of subregional center status, 21 local units with settlements which are regional, and ten units with settlements which are local centers. There are also four municipalities with settlements with no centrality at all. Taking into consideration the fact (stated in numerous studies which were scrutinized when writing this thesis) that the number of the units of local self-government in Croatia (as well as in this county) is enormous, at the end of the thesis a reorganization of the existent administrative-territorial division is proposed and corroborated with successful examples of some european countries. Thereat, the number of local units was decereased by the process of amalgation, and the reorganization of local units was proposed.
