Hungary, 2013 – Report of HCSO to Parliament on state of economy and society
The Hungarian Central Statistical Office launched its publication series titled Hungary 20 years ago in order to present the socio-economic situation of Hungary through statistical data in addition to regular and detailed forms of publication available for a wide range of users. The annual dissemination of social, economic and demographic data on Hungary to the Parliament and the Government, as required by the Act on Statistics, has been implemented with this summary volume for already two decades.
Analyses in the publication Hungary, 2013 focus on processes observed in 2013, however, year 2013 data alone are not sufficient for a deeper review of processes as well as socio-economic phenomena. Therefore, we make reviews of at least the last few years but occasionally also of a longer time span, depending on the nature of processes and phenomena presented. In order to describe the socio-economic changes in Hungary as accurately as possible, the results of professional and scientific analyses prepared in other organisations and research workshops were used, too, in addition to the data of domestic and international statistical services.
As the aim of the volume is to present the year 2013, changes and processes in and data for the year 2014 cannot be mirrored in this analysis. We recommend those interested in up-to-date data the downloadable publications and tables as well as the dissemination database – allowing for data downloading in line with user needs –, available on the website of HCSO.
