Keywords: Population dynamics | Population structure | the Sub-Carpathians between the Prahova and the Dâmboviţa

This Sub-Carpathian sector polarised all economic life in Dâmboviţa County, as its territory was also in the past a crossroads of the most important commercial routes along the Ialomiţa, connecting Transylvania with the south of nowadays Romania and, therefore, the number of people was greater than for other Romanian regions. Between 1930 and 2002 the population of the Sub-Carpathians between the Prahova and the Dâmboviţa increased continuously according to certain economic, social, and cultural trends. We noticed that population natural growth rate decreased from 1992 to 2002 down to negative values because of both population aging and problematic medical assistance. At the same time, the migratory growth rate had an endo-dynamic feature in the areas where the natural growth rate was small and an exo-dynamic feature where the labour force was exceeding request and the unemployment rate was high.
