Hungarian Household Panel Study (1992-1997)

The Hungarian Household Panel Study was a joint research project conducted by TÁRKI, the Budapest University of Economics, the Central Statistical Office, the National Scientific Research Fund (OTKA) and several other Hungarian institutions. During the project, a nationwide sample of 2,600 households was surveyed on a yearly basis between 1991 and 1997. The research focused on changes in the dynamics of the labour market, income inequalities, the life prospects of the various strata of the population and the financial and economic strategies of households. Papers based on the survey are widely accessible in TÁRKI publications, such as the Social Report or the HHP Working Papers.
