Numbers

The total number of Slovaks is probably 2,500,000 to 3,000,000. In Hungary proper they have (even according to the Hungarian census, which the non-Magyar nationalities claim underestimates their strength) nearly 2,000,000 souls, or nearly 12 per cent of the population. Of this 2,000,000 much the greater part is massed in fifteen northern counties of Hungary, the hill country already mentioned, and in a small adjacent district in Moravia, across the border to tbe west, where dwell perhaps some 75,000. Smaller numbers are scattered through other parts af Hungary, and in Croatia-Slavonia are 17,000 more. There are probably about 500,000 in the United States.
