While Census data provide 56.70% Muslim, 10.03 Catholics, 2.09 Bektashi, 0.14 evangelical, 2.5 are declared atheists and 5.49 as believers unspecified, while 13.79% did not answer this question.
As for the ethno-cultural affiliation shows that 82.58% responded that they are Albanian, Roma Greek 0.87 0.30 0.30 Macedonian Aromanian and 0.20.
While the census is opposed by certain quarters that in the beginning, his record is challenged again.
