The analysis of the demographics of the population of the parish of Vid from 1891 to 1900 showed that mortality of population remained as low as in previous decades, but the birth rate increased dramatically. The child mortality rate, how ever, remained as high as in the rest of Dalmatia. However high birth rate caused significant growth of population. The inactive migration balance slowed down population growth. Despite the infamous wine clause (1891.) and the development of Metković, the nearby parish of Vid did not record a significant increase in population emigration from 1891 to 1900 compared to previous decades. Apparently, the collapse of the most widespread economic branch in Dalmatia came after 1900. The end of the 19th century in the parish of Vid seems to be the last decade of relative economic prosperity which enabled the growth of birth rates to the biological limits of the population.
