The period 1881-1913 in the Czech lands was characterized by the First Demographic Transition. Data from this period exist for the numbers of births, marriages and deaths in Cisleithania on the level of political districts and statutory towns/cities; this data forms the basis of the present study. The authors calculated the crude birth, marriage and death rates for the population of the political districts and statutory towns/cities of Austrian Silesia and north-eastern Moravia. The chosen territory represents the wider industrial area of the Ostrava-Karviná (Fryštát) coalfield. The authors compared the crude rates and attempted to explain local differences with regard to economic, social and cultural factors.
