ALBANIA

Albanians are made up of two major subgroups: the Gegs, who generally occupy the area north of the Shkumbin River, and the Tosks, most of whom live south of the river. Ethnic Albanians are estimated to account for 90 percent of the population. The largest ethnic minority within Albania are Greek, who make up about 3% of the total population. The rest of the population is made up by Vlachs, Serbs, Gypsies, and Bulgarians. 38% of Albanians live in cities and towns.

As of July 2001, the estimated population is 3,510,484.
