The young and the elderly

The ageing of the Hungarian and European population, that is, the increase in the proportion of the elderly and the simultaneous decrease in the proportion of the young is a long-term process. During the change in the demographic makeup of society, we can observe differences in the living conditions of social groups of various ages, and the change in certain processes and phenomena (e.g. start of career, retirement) are connected to certain clearly delineable age groups. On this page we have collected contents by age group and about special age groups from various statistical domains.
