Summary/Abstract: The paper presents the results of a research study based on the analysis of demographic statistics and survey data on the regional-demographic characteristics and the quality of life of the population in the border region of Srem. The survey was conducted in eleven bordering villages in the municipality of Sid, in July 2011, on a sample of 140 respondents. Starting from the assumption that regional development in Serbia is characterized by inequality, this research study focused on one peripheral, border area. The aim of this paper is to present the demographic trends and the current satisfaction with life conditions of the population in the border region, and thus highlight the disparities in regional development. The study confirmed all the initial assumptions. We conclude that the population in the border area of Srem is not satisfied with their living standard, due to problems such as unemployment and low income.
