In this article are analysed the basic demographic characteristics of the population of the town of Samobor (total number of denizens, vital processes and structures of population) on the basis of extant parish records, matriculae, of the baptised, the deceased and the married. Different aspects of these demographic characteristics are analysed by the quantitative method, and it is concluded that, from the end of the eighteenth century to 1857, when the first modern census of population was executed, the population of Samobor was still in its pre-transitional phase. Besides that, by the use of the comparative method, it is concluded that the values calculated for Samobor correspond to those of other towns in Croatia. According to its basic demographic characteristics, Samobor gradually gained the character of a town and lost that of a rural environment, and thus it may be stated that in the first half of the nineteenth century, it became an extremely attractive urban environment with open possibilities of economic success for immigrants.
