- Hungary Around the Clock
The Hungarian financial situation has improved, but no faster than the EU average.
The study shows that Hungary did not make any progress in international comparison between 2005 and 2017.
As a result, a significant part of society is poor at the EU level.
Hungary’s poverty line – defined as 60% of the median income – is 40% of the overall poverty line in the EU.
After Hungary, the figure is lower only in Romania and Bulgaria.
By comparison, the Slovak figure is close to 60%, the Polish one is close to 70%, and the Czech threshold is around 80% of the EU average.
