Sažetak
The Roma (Gypsy) are the largest European transnational minority population characterized by poverty, social exclusion, poor education and traditional attitudes towards female reproductive health that all contribute to a high fertility reproductive pattern. In order to assess the influence of urbanization on the socio-economic status and reproductive characteristics of Roma women, we included in the study a total of 207 adult Roma women aged 18-72 yrs (40.6±13.7) living in urban (87) and rural (110) settlements in Croatia. The study showed that the Roma women marry young (17.5 years) for a husband two years their senior (19.6 yrs) and give birth to 3.8±2.6 children. Financially, the Roma women primarily relay on social welfare support allowance (63.5%) and child allowance (41%), while merely 5% are permanently and 17% occasionally employed. The proportion of the Roma women who had never attended school amounts as high as 39.1%. The urban-rural difference was not found in any reproductive characteristics (number of children, contraception, menarcheal and menopausal age, etc.). On the other hand, two important differences in socio-economic variables were found: urban Roma women compared to their rural counterparts more frequently have a permanent job (9% vs. 1% ; p = 0.012) and less frequently receive social welfare support allowance (42% vs. 87% ; p < 0.001). These differences in social and financial position of urban Roma women warrant a follow-up of this population to detect whether a) this trend will continue to spread and b) it will have an impact on reproductive behaviour and health.
