Abstract

The idea for the topic of this Master's Thesis derives from a personal wish or, rather, the need to move to a country with a more stable economy after finishing university. The inevitable daily encounters with a demographically negative situation and trends in the Republic of Croatia necessarily leads to a more detailed review about this currently relevant socio-economic topic and a key problem of the country contributing to the further collapse of the already fragile Croatian economy. More precisely, the focus of the thesis will be the emigration of young, educated people between 20 and 29 years of age, who had decided to utilize the knowledge, skills and abilities they gained in Croatia, in a foreign country. The thesis will deal with the mobility and potential exodus of young Croatian population through a sociodemographic analysis of basic stimuli to emigration. The data processed in the thesis will encompass the period from 2001 to today. However, most of the thesis will deal with data from a survey conducted on 1919 respondents from the abovementioned age group. Finally, the survey analysis will result in a more transparent current condition of the issue, as well as in a general forecast for the demographic situation in Croatia in the near future.
