Abstract

The purpose of this paper is the research of immigration and
emigration trends of the population in the period from 1910 to
1961/71 in the areas Istria, Rijeka and Zadar, and the islands Cres,
Lošinj and Lastovo. These areas were annexed to Yugoslavia after
World War II, more precisely to the republics Croatia and Slovenia,
while between the wars they were under the rule of Italy. The point
of departure in the analysis is the 1846 ce nsus conducted in
Croatian (the mother tongue), which is then compared with the
1880 census based on the business language ("umgangs-
-sprache") by means of which the number of the Italian population
was administratively increased. In analysis and necessary
correction of later censuses, the author had reached the following
findings. Between the wars, under the fascist regime, there were
53 thousand Croats evicted, while 44 thousand Italians were
settled in the Istria and Rijeka region. After World War II 163
thousand ltallans and 25 thousand Croats emigrated from Istria,
Rijeka and Zadar, and also from the islands Cres and Lošinj,
amounting to 188 thousand people. If we subtract from this
number the 44 thousand Italians who came during the fascist
period (plus a growth of 2000) we arrive at the number of 142
thousand native Italians and Croats who moved from the Croatian
Republic after World War II.
