The article deals with a proposal of

a new administrative-territorial

division at regional selfgovernment

level in the Republic

of Croatia. The main aim of the paper is to

obtain optimal administrative -territorial

division of the country which would

provide optimal performance of public

tasks and responsibilities at the regional

level. The proposal is obtained through use

of multivariate statistical methods, and it is

based on a wide number of demographic,

economic, and public functions indicators

measured on 20 Croatian counties. The

main grouping criterion is importance and

representatives of identified public functions’

dimensions. As a result of the analysis, seven

new regions are created and they should

replace the existing 20 counties. Each of

the obtained regions contains counties with

similar characteristics and similar capacity

for public function completition.
