The article gives an overview of the demographic structures of the Czech Republic population over the past one hundred years, from the establishment of the independent Czechoslovakia up to now. It is focused on the comparison of the development of the population composition by age, sex, and marital status in three periods: between the two World Wars, in the period of „building socialism“ lasting more than 40 years, and after the fall of the totalitarism with the existence of the independent Czech Republic and Slovak Republic. Besides the fundamental demographic structures, the study also examines the development of the educational and nationality structure, as well as the population composition by religion affiliation. The analysis is generally based on the population census data.
