Abstract: People generally labeled as Roma have unique social, cultural and demographic characteristics across even within the borders of a small geographical area. As a consequence, this study aims to establish main determinants of labor force participation in the case of metropolitan Roma people. The approach is innovative from mainly two points of view: first, methodologically, it uses census, not survey, data; second, it covers the Roma population in Bucharest, which is, to our knowledge the first study of its kind. The paper focuses on education as main determinant of labor force participation as this variable is o particular interest for developing countries. The final section of the paper, presents the main conclusions driven from the logit and probit analysis performed within the study; it also emphasizes the main policy recommendations in the studied area.
