This research into the population structures of the towns of Frydek and Mistek is based on classic methods of historical demography, working with church registers, censuses and Austrian population statistics from 1869 to 1910. It concentrates on contrasting data on the populations of the two towns and on the demographic changes that occurred during the industrial revolution, which means changes in biological and cultural structures, especially with regard to the influence of the dominant industry - the textile industry - and to some extent also the metallurgy industry that developed in the surrounding area. In the article the religious, ethnic, and professional structures of both urban populations are charted to reveal some specific aspects of the Ostrava region, which were the result of its geographical location close to the border with Galicia and Prussian Silesia.
