Qualitative Info

As statistical data do not ascertain information on ethnicity, it is difficult to provide clear figures on Sinti and Roma as well as on other minority groups in Germany. But some non-representative surveys show that ethnically segregated Sinti and Roma neighbourhoods have emerged in several cities. Thereby, ethnic segregation (contrary to socio-economic segregation) is sometimes sought by the Sinti and Roma community itself [2, p. 6/34].
