The unequal distribution of pharmacies and drugstores in the Romanian provinces in 1936 was partly due to the various nationalities living there. In provinces where Romanians averaged out at 90% (Oltenia, most part of the counties in Muntenia and Moldavia), the number of pharmacies and drugstores for every 100,000 inhabitants was lower than the country average: 8.4 for pharmacies and 2.51 for drugstores respectively. Their number was even less in Dobruja, where the Romanian population was under 50%, but a lot of Turks, Tatars and Bulgarians lived there. The number of pharmacies and especially of drugstores increased in provinces and counties inhabited by a large number of Jews. In the provinces and counties of Transylvania inhabited by a large Hungarian population, the number of pharmacies exceeded the country average. But there were less drugstores. The most pharmacies could be found in the counties with a large German population.
