The paper deals with the population potential of the Krapina-Zagorje County on the administrative level of towns/municipalities. The analysis is based on selected demographic indicators and variables, with population potential being represented by the demographic resources index. The results of the population potential analysis indicate the spatial disparity of the Krapina-Zagorje County. Unfavourable demographic development, primarily strong depopulation and ageing, have led to the weakening of the demographic base to a large
extent and to the decreasing of the total population potential in the County.
