This study is the first to apply econometric tools in the study of wage discrimination for the integrated Romani population (“Gypsies”). Analyzing 2007-08 data from a random sample, the Athens Area Study, drawn from 16 multiethnic municipalities, the author finds that male Roma workers earned 16.4% less than non-Roma workers with the same age, marital status, education, and occupational characteristics did. By using a random sample and multivariate analysis, this study constitutes a significant methodological advancement over previous studies of Romani discrimination and initiates efforts to compare earnings based on Romani background.
