The goal of this article is to answer the question which size-cathegories of municipalities are relevant for the recearch of local party systems in the Czech Republic and in which size-cathegories this research is pointless. Using the quantitative analysis of statistical data, the authors come to a result which is presented in conclusion of the article. Even though the result is foreseeable, this is the first time that it has been achieved not by pure observation, but is based on the analysis of statistical data.
