According to census from 2001 Croatia has 3,682.826 settlements in age 15 and more years old. Out of that number 254.500 is temporarily employed in foreign countries (6.9 %).It is more important to mention that 31.526 (12.38%) is highly educated what is significantly more than their deal in total Croatian population (8.01%). These facts are telling us that Croatia as semi-developed country creates educated people for highly-developed countries, what is one of generators of deepening its lower level of development. If we go further into analysis, we can discover that Croatia is educational „eldorado„ for highly developed countries. More over, Croatia is providing the scientific workers for highly developed countries, what we call in sociology „Brain-drain“. We can illustrate that with the fact that 999 doctors of science and 1.665 masters of sciences from Croatia are working out of the country. That means that 3.2% of Croatian migrant workers are doctors or masters of Science, or that one seventh of Croatian scientists are working abroad. This text is showing the countries in which Croatian doctors are employed (mostly in North America and Europe), their socio-demographic characteristics (there are twice relatively more males than females) as well as the basic causes of the Croatian „brain-drain“ (bad working conditions in Croatia, low wages of scientists, very large study groups etc).
