Abstract

The main factor in natural environment’s transformation and socio-geographic reality is population. The goal of this paper is to determine the current state of demographic resources on the island, and with the analysis of synthetic indicators of demographic resources form the typology of spatial units of the island. In this way it helps with their identification, evaluation and comparison. A special emphasis will be placed on innovative processes that have marked the last intercensal period. The research of demographic changes in the island of Brač is primarily represented by the problem of depopulation. Emigration, aging of Brač's population and it's moving to coastal areas, caused many changes in the environment especially the central and unoccupied parts of the island. All this has contributed to the current spatial distribution of population, and creating of a logical urban concentration on industrial, touristic and traffic active points.
