Population Trends on the Territory of the Czech Republic

Zdeněk Pavlík

The process of demographic revolution had specific features on the territory of the Czech Republic. It started in the first half of the 19th century and ended between Two World Wars. The course of this process corresponded with the geographical position of Czech Lands in Europe. The demographic situation after the World War II was affected unfavourably by the political appurtenance of former Czechoslovakia to the Soviet block, especially in the field of mortality.
