The administrative organization of Bosnia and Herzegovina (51.221 km²) was identical to the first census in the socialist Yugoslavia (1948), apart from the fact that the Odžak district had been abolished and merged with the district of Modriča. The option to identify oneself as Muslim or Bosniak was still absent in 1953. The majority of those who identified themselves as Yugslavs would have otherwise declared themselves Muslims or Bosniaks; similarly, people of Muslim belief also identified as Croat or Serb.
