Synonyms until now, village and agriculture, today have different meanings because their social meaning changed. Village is less of a settlement of classical farmer, and it is becoming more like an area of escape from city rush. Farmers have been almost erased and new social groups have come, one of the most important is a group of farmer-workers, mostly born in village and spatially stable, who often travel to the city to work, and at the end of the day come back to village. Farmer-workers are a product of decentralisation of industry. Increase of farmer-workers is followed by the increase of mixed economies, because it is hard to take care of the family only with agriculture. Depopulation of village, in croatian framework, was longlasting and continuous process, which is still active in many parts of Croatia. Indicator of increase of population in villages can be area of Sveti Martin pod Okićem with his surroundings. According to the residents, they are settled with life in village, either they are born there, or have immigrated there. They are mostly satisfied with their life there, even though they have some objections, which, at the end are not that relevant for their life there.
