The goal of the volume is to review the main developments in the Hungarian labour market and to give an in-depth analysis of key issues. The chapters present “stylised facts” and recent research results. Our further intention is to guide readers in finding other relevant publications and reliable statistical sources. The contributions related to the selected themes: wages and incomes support to the jobless give analyses on institutions, rules and market forces that shape wages or unemployment benefits and look at resulting costs and revenue changes that have occurred over a decade of transition. The closing chapter presents selected statistical data on the main economic and demographic trends, labour market participation, employment and unemployment, inactivity, wages, education, labour demand and supply, spatial disparities, migration, commuting, labour relations, together with some international comparisons.
