The starting point of this paper is the classification of economic activities according to their
geographical distribution. Porter (2003) distinguishes traded activities, activities depending on
natural resources and local activities. The aim of this paper is to establish the local economic
activities (activity sections) in Croatia, which means activities whose layout in space is adjusted
to spatial distribution of population. For that purpose a modified use of Gini’s coefficient
has been suggested, the Gini’s population coefficient, which compares geographical distribution
of employment in certain activities with geographical distribution of population. This
has established economical activities which are distributed amongst counties in Croatia in
consistence to the distribution of population (2017): education, electricity, gas, steam and air
conditioning supply, water supply, human health and social work activities, etc. The second
part of this paper identifies the activities which are distributed in municipalities and towns
of Croatia similarly to population. Education is the activity whose geographical distribution
slightly deviates from the distribution of population in Croatia by municipalities and towns.
The existence of differences between local and other activities connected with employment has
also been pointed out in the paper.
