Women, pensioners, and people with primary education feel the inflation most.
Only one in seven Hungarians (14%) said they spent the same as before. The others had, at least partially, to give up something because of the rising prices.
For the time being, 41% of the population has only had to cut down on "luxury" expenses, giving up on entertainment and more expensive services, such as beauticians, hairdressers, gyms, and more expensive food.
Another 45%, on the other hand, were forced to cut back even more; they are already forced to save on basic food and household items, such as cleaning and hygiene products.
