This paper deals with demographic characteristics of former Obrovac Municipality that existed as such until 1993. Like most of the municipalities in Dalmatian hinterland, this municipality was also affected by depopulation processes. The purpose of this paper is to determine the intensity of these processes by analyzing the various aspects of population structures. The analysis includes population trends, age-sex structure, educational structure, economic and ethnic composition. This mostly rural area has always been underdeveloped with depopulation processes dating from 1970s that particularly intensified during and after the Croatian War of Independence.
