It is particularly important to present, in addition to our regular and detailed publications, the current situation of the areas most affected by the pandemic with flash estimates using a limited information base. Our WEEKLY MONITOR presents the economic and social impacts of the pandemic through daily, weekly and monthly updated preliminary data as a collection of interactive diagrams.
In the first quarter of 2021, the number of recorded crimes continued to decrease (by 4.3%) compared to a year earlier, similar to previous quarters. The majority of counties recorded a decrease, with the highest rate (32%) in Somogy County, but also above 20% in Nógrád, Békés, Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok and Heves counties. Outside the capital, Veszprém, Hajdú-Bihar and Zala counties showed an increase (15–38%).
Hungary's welfare system spends more than the EU average on supporting families and children as well as old people. The real value of child care benefit has risen more than two-fold, while that of family allowance has decreased to the half since 1990. The real value of pensions and other benefits was 44% higher in 2019 than in 1990. Hungary spent 7.4 thousand billion forints on social protection in 2018, 65% of which was provided as benefits in cash and 35% as benefits in kind to people in need.
The yearbook presents how demographic, socio-economic trends and environmental characteristics changed over time in Hungary. The main indicators are illustrated in time series or regional comparisons by charts and maps; the interactive versions of these are available on our website. Spatial disparities among counties and regions as well as international indicators are presented in separate chapters. The internet annex contains the publication in PDF format and all tables in Excel format.
