The census of 1857 was the first census in the Habsburg Empire where the occupations of those conscripted were asked. The paper examines the occupational structure of active population in Civil Croatia and in Croatian-Slavonian Military Frontier and compares it with that of the other lands and regions of the Empire. On the strength of occupational structure and livestock density tries to determine the level of development of the Croatian economy and place Croatia in the economic hierarchy of lands and regions.
