The objectives of the research program are to diagnose the socio-economic situation of Roma, including their health status, as well as to design and evaluate the public policy aiming at the improvement of Roma’s life circumstances. The Research Institute for Quality of Life carried out three major surveys on Roma population: in 1992, 1998 and 2001, the latter one being part of an international survey. The research carried out in 1992 on a representative sample of 3600 households was the first ever study in the world dedicated to the investigation of socio-economic situation of Roma. Our institute also accomplished the first estimation of Roma population’s size in Romania by substantially correcting in 1994 the 1992 census data.
