ABSTRACT. – The Macro and Micro Structural Impact of the Ethnic Element in Birda-Moravița Plain. The article aims to perform an evaluation of the ethnic specificity both at regional level (macro structurally) and at the level of the most representative localities (micro structurally). In Birda-Moravița Plain, both regionally and on a commune level, the ethnic element registered major variations throughout the analysed censuses. These variations were caused especially by a strong migration wave. The main consequence of this wave was the transition from a heterogeneous ethnic structure to a higher degree of homogeneity and to an assimilation by the Romanians of the other ethnic elements.
Keywords: ethnicity, ethnic diversity, Romanian inhabitants, national minorities.
