In compliance with the law, the Croatian Institute for Spatial Development had to prepare the Report on the State of Space of Croatia for the period 2013–2016 (Report), for which it was necessary to prepare an analytical background for the economy sector. The analytical background contained a detailed analysis of economy on the territory of the Republic of Croatia in the observed period. In addition, the background could be used for the elaboration of other spatial-planning documentation elaborated at the Institute and for purposes of the developmental projects. The analytical background was based on the scientific-expert perspective about the state and trends in the Croatian economy and their spatial influence. It consisted of the following parts:

  • Demographic trends and migrations in Croatia in the period 2013–2017
  • Structural and spatial analysis of the Croatian economy
  • Analysis of coastal and island spatial-economic development
  • Management of spatial-economic development
  • Analysis of a system of reporting on the space-economy aspects.
