Hungary -OECD reports on life quality -October 17, 2015

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) released a country profile titled How’s Life in Hungary as part of the international economic organization’s ‘Better Life Initiative’. The report spotlights the fact that children of poor families have it especially hard. There are marked regional disparities in the level of education, income and access to things such as broadband internet between Central Hungary and the Northern Great Plain regions. Other findings are that life satisfaction falls below the OECD average, that the household disposable income per capita is one of the lowest and the wage level is one of the lowest of average earnings in the OECD.
