Horn District

The district Horn is the Waldviertel in Lower Austria and is bordered to the north by the Czech Republic.


As in other districts of the north boundary layer also took in this district from the population since the census of 1939. Was there during the subsequent count of 1951 in many municipalities and cities partly large population increases, the opposite was in the district of Horn exactly the case. 1939 reached the classification of the population with 42,241 persons its maximum value. 1951 snapped the stagnant since 1910 the population curve finally down, and sagged to 40 913 people to fall back subsequently in 1961 to 38 288 - this value roughly corresponds to the counting of 1910 - and 1971 to 36 863. In 1981 it was even only 34 599 people and 32 465 in 1991. Since then, the population has stabilized and is - according to census of 2001 - at 32,400. In consideration of these numbers is evident that the numbers exactly in the years of the Iron Curtain - decreased by around 200 people - the offset of the district as well as the adjacent edge in an awkward position. Prior to that, as well as afterwards the inhabitants stand either grew, or stagnated, as it is currently the case.
