The concept of a nation current in the United States which equates citizenship, nationality and nationhood and makes it a factor dominant over ethnicity has been relevant to some aspects of the historical interaction between the Slovaks, Czechs, Rusyns (Ruthenians), Ukrainians, Roma, and Poles, but it has always been interpreted in ethnic terms in the region. Ethnicity has been the main feature in the interaction between the Slovaks and Magyars. The article reviews the history and current situation of Slovakia's ethnic groups (nationalities): Slovaks, Hungarians (Magyars), Roma (Gypsies), Rusyns (Ruthenians), Czechs, Jews -- their demographics, language use, social status, religious affiliation, attitudes to language, schools, exogamy.
