Hungary births up in 2020
In an interview with public broadcaster Kossuth Radio, Vukovich attributed the rise in births to the policies targeting demographic growth implemented by the government in recent years.
Hungary’s fertility rate also increased over the past decade, Vukovich said, noting that it had risen from 1.23 in 2011 to 1.56 in 2020.
She added, however, that the country’s population has been steadily declining since the 1980s. This, she said, could only be remedied by combinations of policies designed to promote demographic growth.
Vukovich praised the family policies introduced by the government in recent years, saying they were designed to help families find the best ways to have as many children as they want.
