Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Quote (Wiki):
A study done in 1871 by Austrian colonel Peter Kukulj[15] for the internal use of the Austro-Hungarian army showed that the mutesarifluk of Prizren (corresponding largely to present-day Kosovo) had some 500,000 inhabitants, of which:

    * 318,000 Serbs (64%),
    * 161,000 Albanians (32%),
    * 10,000 Roma (Gypsies) and Circassians
    * 2,000 Turks
An Austrian statistics[17] published in 1899 estimated:

    * 182,650 Albanians (47.88%)
    * 166,700 Serbs (43.7%)
British journalist H. Brailsford estimated in 1906[18] that two-thirds of the population of Kosovo was Albanian and one-third Serbian.
