This article is about the demographic features of the population of Sandžak

1948

According to the 1948 Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia population census, over 93% of population of the Serbian part of the region were Serbs and over 91% of population of the Montenegrin part were Montenegrins. The Muslims had the largest share of the population in districts of Priboj and Novi Pazar, and the least in Berane. However, many Slavic Muslims declared themselves as Serbs or Montenegrins in this census. Other nationalities could be found mainly in the Berane district (mostly Albanians) and the smaller numbers of other nationalities existed in the districts of Sjenica, Nova Varoš, and Novi Pazar; while Priboj had no other nationalities.
