Census: Share of young parents up in Hungary, but population aging

Data from Hungary's latest national census shows an increase in marriages and a growing share of people under the age of 30 with children, but the country's population is aging, the head of the Central Statistical Office (KSH) said on Tuesday.

Presenting the results of the 2022 census, Aron Kincses told a press conference that the data indicated that Hungary was developing and changing. Employment is up significantly and modern technologies are constantly reshaping the labour market, he said.

Foreign-language proficiency, education levels and digital skills among the population have gone up significantly since the last census carried out 11 years ago, he said.

Marcell Kovacs, the census’s project manager, said 60 percent of the population responded to the questions on religious affiliation. Answering a question, he said 40 percent had left those sections of the survey blank compared with 27 percent in 2011.
