Using the 2002 Census data from Romania the author shows that there is a considerable difference among high-educated persons of different nationality. Moreover, the survey data of Public Opinion Barometer (Research funded by Soros Foundation Romania) demonstrates that - contrary to Adel Pasztor findings, published by Review of Sociology and Szociologiai Szemle - there is a significant difference in educational attainment in Romania among ethnic Romanian and ethnic Hungarian youths of 25-29 yrs of age, in favor of Romanians. 26,715 persons were questioned in 14 field researches during the period of 1998 and 2004. In the age group 25-29, 15.7 per cent of ethnic Romanians and 5.3 per cent of ethnic Hungarians had a diploma in higher education at the time of the survey.
