On the basis of the first Local Self-Government Act (1993) and the Establishment of Municipalities and Municipal Boundaries Act (1994), 147 municipalities were created in 1994, till 2002 their number increased to 193. Most of the newly-founded municipalities were small, including municipalities that did not meet the conditions stipulated by law. Consequently, there have been many discussions on the efficiency of such municipalities and the reasonableness of any further division of Slovenia. In 2005, 95 municipalities had less than 5 000 inhabitants, which is the legally prescribed threshold for the establishment of a municipality. Therefore, all these municipalities were surveyed and an assessment of their impact on the development of rural areas in Slovenia was given.
