Abstract


Traffic flows that achieve transfer of information, transport of goods and passengers at the national level, represent a picture of social and economic population activities in a certain way. Besides that, today there are various standardized parameters that can determine the particularity of the observed region by measuring. In this work assignment, authors have tried to determine if different traffic flow are mutually connected and to what extent, as well as to confirm relationship between different indicators and to point at possible connections between traffic flows and measured indicators. Knowing individual country characteristics and its place in multilateral relations in the world, gives a new frame for defining complex position of the observed region at a wider level.


Keywords
