Rijeka, Life expectancy, seaport, Zagreb, population density

The total population of Croatia at the time of the 1991 census was 4,784,265; a 2002 estimate was 4,390,751. During and after the war ethnic Serbs fled Croatia while ethnic Croats moved in. Although Croatia’s natural population growth rate, which measures births and deaths, was negative in 1998, the actual population grew by 1.12 percent due to immigration. Life expectancy at birth was 74 years in 2002.

The population density in 2002 was 78 persons per sq km (201 per sq mi). In 2000, 58 percent of the population was urban. Most of the urban population is concentrated in four cities: Zagreb, the country’s capital and primary industrial center; Split, a seaport; Rijeka, also a seaport; and the agricultural and industrial center of Osijek.
