The 1527 Zadar census is the oldest preserved census of a Dalmatian commune. It is not only the starting point for the study of the population trends in the Dalmatian metropole in the 1500s, but also, thanks to the richness and diversity of the information it contains, an excellent source for an enquiry into the Zadar society in the early decades of the sixteenth century. This article uses data from the census to examine the structure of the Zadar society. The examination includes analyses of class groups (citizens, plebeians, patricians, clergy and representatives of the Venetian civil and military government) and professional (artisans, craftsmen, tradesmen and sailors) groups as well as the studies of the demographic structure of the society and the chief migration trends that may be recognized in the census.
