Abstract: - Human Resources in the Upper Arieș Valley. People are one of the most important, if not the most important, asset that a region has. Any significant variation in the structure of the demography of the area has important consequences in the development of the region. The present study analysis the demographic situation that the region finds itself today by looking at its evolution in time and when relevant comparing it to the Abrud region, the other half of the Land of Moți. Even though the area is still characterised by phenomena of ageing and feminisation, mostly as the result of the rural exodus that affected the area in the 1970s and 1980s, when our country experienced an intense industrialisation, the economic problems in the area due to the collapse of mining in the last 20 years and of the new methods of contraception available after 1990, nowadays we notice that a certain stability of the population numbers has been reached. We also look at the structure of population, at ethnicity, gender and the employment and unemployment rate and how all these affect the future development of the region and its entrepreneurship spirit.

Key-Words: depopulation, feminisation, ageing, birth rate, dependency index, entrepreneurship.
