In this paper we will address the demographic features of the Polog Region, with special emphasis to population structure. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the movement of the population according to registrations, population density, population structures by gender, age, nationality, education and employment for the period 2002-2018, based on municipalities. Population is the main factor of diverse and dynamic changes in area. Polog region, with its favorable position and suitable living conditions, has been populated since prehistoric times, but studies for that period are deficient. Through this paper we aim to highlight the features of the social life of the inhabitants of this geographical area. Some of methods that we used in this paper are: descriptive method, analytical, comparative, statistical and cartographic method, by taking for study the official data of the State Statistical Office for population of Republic of North Macedonia. The Polog region has a total area of about 2417 km², with 322338 inhabitants or 15.5 % of the total population of North Macedonia and a density of 133 i/ km². The population structure by gender in the Polog region out of a total of 322338 inhabitants is in the ratio 162306 or 50.36% males and 49.64% females, while the structure of the population by age has this ratio: age group 0-19 includes 72419 or 22.47%, age group from 20-59 includes 202314 or 62,76% and the age group of over 60 years old includes 47 605 inhabitants or 14.77%.
