ABSTRACT. The aim of this paper was to identify changes in the number and age structure of inhabitants and changes in the housing stock of Poznań city in the selected years (2008 and 2013). In the first part of the paper, we describe functional and spatial transformations in contemporary cities as well as their causes. The process of suburbanization and the resulting phenomenon of “shrinking cities” is discussed. In the empirical part, on the basis of data from the registration base of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (Poland), we carried out the analysis of the demographic structure of Poznań population and of the structure of buildings in Poznań downtown.
