Roma in the Republic of Moldova
May 20, 2016
Given the similar challenge of lack of reliable and accurate data on Roma population available from existing Moldovan statistics, UNDP Moldova initiated in 2005 the first quantitative study, which covered 600 Roma and 600 non-Roma households in 81 localities. The present report was designed to provide the national counterparts with basic quantitative data and statistics on the Roma situation in Moldova in different areas such as: poverty profiles (incomes and expenses), education, employment and unemployment, health, housing, security and migration.
This information should also serve the purpose of enhancing the national dialogue on the Roma situation in Moldova and the challenges faced by the Roma, as well as providing a platform for the development of solutions, sound policies and the implementation of comprehensive programmes of Roma social inclusion.
