Geographia Polonica (1992) vol. 59, pp. 155-166
This paper contains a short demographic characteristic as well as projection of the population number and structure in the Katowice region*. Apart from this, the question of the consistency of the assumptions made in the projection model with the reality are taken into account. On this basis, an assessment is made concerning the possibility of treating the projection results as a demographic forecast. The analysis is based on 1983 and 1984 data.
