The Roma are one of the most marginalized ethnical
groups with many economical, social and cultural problems.
These are even bigger if it is about the Central and
Eastern European countries, including the Republic of
Macedonia. All these living aspects are to be examined
deeper in order to get a real image about them. Different
researches are done in this sphere, but this was mainly
done on the total population in Macedonia, without
making research on the Roma population as ethnic
group with specific and rooted problems. The Institute
for sociological political and juridical researches continues
the several-decade continuity of researching this
area and with the conducted inquiry tries to open up
only one part of the problems that they are faced with
and this represents initiative step in the effort to get precise
image about what represents economical-social
aspect of the Roma life.

in the economical and the social sphere that the different
Roma categories are faced with (firm owners, the ones
who are selling at the open markets, the ones who are
making different services, the unemployed etc.)
- to make an image about this sphere specifications in
different regions in Macedonia
- to point on the most characteristic specifications related
