Roma Census Success
No country in Europe has an accurate number for Roma citizens in their ofﬁcial census. Many Roma do not ofﬁcially register their identity due to fear of discrimination, long-standing assimilation pressures, and lack of information on the beneﬁts of registration.
Roma census registration campaigns carried out in 2012 by the Open Society Foundations and Roma communities are helping end the invisibility of Roma populations in parts of Central and Eastern Europe.
This fact sheet documents the success of these campaigns.
