About this survey

FRA’s 2019 survey on Roma and Travellers in Belgium, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom interviewed almost 4 700 Roma and Travellers, collecting information on more than 8 200 individuals living in their households.

The previous data collection exercises on Roma, under the second European Union Minorities and Discrimination Survey (EU-MIDIS II), did not cover these countries.

The overall aim of the survey is to support and contribute to the efforts of EU institutions and Member States towards “putting an end to the exclusion of Roma”, which the European Commission has acknowledged as “one of the most serious social challenges in Europe”. Its findings provide evidence for a list of core indicators used to monitor the implementation of the EU Framework for National Roma Integration Strategies up to 2020. They also provide a basis for developing new indicators, as a baseline for post-2020 EU initiatives on Roma equality and inclusion. FRA’s input responds to the need for strengthened data collection and the development of monitoring and reporting systems, which the same evaluation report identifies in its conclusions. The Commission has published a roadmap towards the EU’s post-2020 Roma equality and inclusion policy, which refers to FRA’s previous surveys on Roma in 2011 and 2016 and requests further evidence.14 This roadmap is likely to lead to a proposal for a revised Council recommendation on Roma equality and inclusion measures accompanied by a communication presenting the post-2020 EU strategic framework.

Interviews were conducted face to face, with trained interviewers using a computerised questionnaire. The survey targeted individuals aged 16 or over who self-identified as having a Roma or Traveller background (or any group subsumed under these umbrella terms), who lived in private households and whose usual place of residence was the survey country for at least six of the 12 months before the survey. The survey collected information from 4 659 respondents in Belgium, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom and concerning 8 234 individuals living in the respondents’ households (i.e. 12 893 Roma and Travellers in total) and about the infrastructure of the halting site or neighbourhood 7 . The fieldwork took place from December 2018 until July 2019 through face-to-face interviews. The results of the survey are published in the main results report, Roma and Travellers in Six Countries.
