The chapter begins with a discussion of some of the particular issues that arise in analyzing data regarding Roma and identifies the caveats that should be considered in interpreting the information. While the gaps and limitations of the information base on Roma are real, this does not invalidate the entire body of analysis. Throughout this book, information from multiple sources and perspectives are presented to assemble a comprehensive view of Roma welfare and living conditions. MEASUREMENT CHALLENGES Social welfare data in Central and Eastern Europe are often plagued with problems due to weak and sometimes biased statistical systems that were inherited from the socialist era and the use of definitions and methodologies that are often outdated, inconsistent with international standards, or not comparable across countries.

However, marginalization and discrimination have been common (Bárány 2002). During their first centuries in Europe, Roma were valued for their skills in metalworking, armaments, and music. They were also subject to prejudice and persecution. As early as the fifteenth century, Roma were traded as slaves in the Moldavia and Wallachia principalities (currently Romania). Draconian anti-Roma policies were adopted throughout Europe. A scholar notes that “[h]ad all the anti-Gypsy laws which sprang up been enforced uncompromisingly, even for a few months, the Gypsies would have been eradicated from most of Christian Europe well before the middle of the sixteenth century” (Fraser 1995).

However, the transition also brought new civic challenges and hardships. Political liberalization let extremist parties onto the political scene and opened other avenues for public expression of hatred against Roma. AntiRoma violence was documented in the 1990s in all the Central and Eastern European countries. Hence, designing and implementing programs to address the exclusion of Roma requires attention to the unique issues of diversity, culture, and social exclusion.
