Summary/Abstract: Part three of the volume is divided into three tests. The first part presents the analysis of demographic processes in Miercurea Ciuc. The demographic analysis presents the causes of population evolution (natural movement and migration), the changes in the population and labour force, and finally the data on housing. The second part of the sociology study presents the demographic projection of the city’s population in the period between 2002 and 2022. Calculations on the population growth were made by the application of the Cohort-Component Method, using a software programme that allows the simulation of arbitrary assumptions about factors that may influence population movements. The third part of this study provides a focus-group type of evaluation designed to present ideas and demands of the urban population regarding tourism.
