Demographics of Slovenia

From Example Problems

The majority of Slovenia's population is Slovenian (over 88%). Hungarians and Italians have the status of indigenous minorities under the Constitution of Slovenia, which guarantees them seats in the National Assembly. Most other minority groups, particularly those from the former Yugoslavia, immigrated after World War II for economic reasons. Slovenians are predominantly Roman Catholic, though the country also has a small number of Protestants, Orthodox Christians, Muslims, and Jews. Slovenian is a Slavic language, written in the Roman script.

In 1991, about 18,000 Yugoslav citizens living in newly-independent Slovenia failed to apply for Slovenian citizenship and thus lost all their administrative rights. These people were later called the erased. Today only around 4,000 of them still do not have any legal status.
