Yugoslavs in Serbia refers to the group of people from Serbia who exclusively view themselves as Yugoslavs with no other ethnic self-identification. Additionally, there are also Serbs, Croats, Montenegrins and people of other ethnic origin from Serbia, which besides identifying as such do also have a Yugoslav identity. However, the latter group does not identify as being part of a Yugoslav nation, which is the way the first group identifies.

According to the 2011 census, some 23,303 people or 0.32% of the inhabitants of Serbia declared their ethnicity as Yugoslav.
