This paper analyses and compares the basic demographic characteristics of the selected districts of the Jihomoravský region, namely the urban Brno-město district, the suburban Brno-venkov district and the provincial Břeclav district, in the period between 1990–2000. The methodology section describes the indicators we have used, the basic data were taken from the database of the Czech Statistical Office. Generally speaking, the life expectancy increases, the proportion of the post-productive population increases while there is a significant decrease in the proportion of the pre-productive population as well as in the rates of most demographic categories (marriage rate, birth rate, abortion rate and, to some extent, mortality). Natural reproduction has been negative for a long time. The results reveal that the provincial and the suburban district are similar in most indices as far as both the index level and the population development are concerned. On the other hand, the urban district shows significant differences.
