Hungary - Regional disparities in purchase power - January 31, 2018

Based on data from the Central Statistical Office (KSH) and National Tax and Customs Administration (NAV), research institute GKI calculated that per capita purchasing power was HUF 1.2 million (3863 euro) on average in 2016. A regional breakdown shows that the poorest settlements were located in southern and northeast Hungary, while the wealthier ones were located in northern Transdanubia and Central Hungary. The range in the settlements surveyed is relatively broad from a level below HUF 0.8 million to above 1.6 million in the wealthiest settlements and some Budapest districts.
