1. Generates estimates for Roma and non-Roma populations for 1985-2025 and uses Roma earning capacity, employment rates and average GNP/capita to calculate a conservative GNP deficit.
2. Generates numbers of Roma and non-Roma in the school age population. It uses live birth rates only to provide an accurate indication of the make up of pre-school and school age populations.
3. generates estimates of the relative flows of Roma and non-Roma into the workforce age group, beyond school age and a more accurate determination of the GNP deficit.
