Rusyns of Romania
This article does not cite any sources. (March 2007) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)
While only 262 people officially identified themselves as "Rusyns" in the 2002 Romanian census, 3,890 people identified as Hutsuls (Romanian: Huțuli; Rusyn Hutsuly) – a minority whose members often identifiy or are regarded as a subgroup of the Rusyns.
Another 61,091 Romanian citizens identified as Ukrainian (Romanian: Ucraineni). As the archaic exonym Ruthenians was previously applied to both Rusyns and Ukrainians, some Ukrainian-Romanians may also regard themselves as Rusyns (without declaring themselves to, or being identified by, census collectors). Ukrainian-Romanians live primarily in northwestern Romania; the largest populations are found in Satu Mare and Maramureş counties.
