Key figures

On 1 October 2022, 3.4% fewer people were living in Hungary than at the reference date of the 2011 Census. The population has been falling steadily since 1980. The main reason is that deaths are increasingly outnumbering births.

Hungary's housing stock is growing from census to census. In 2022, there were 4.6 million dwellings in Hungary, an increase of 190 thousand (4.3%) compared to the previous census. Housing construction in Hungary reached its lowest point in 2013, followed by a recovery until 2020.

Data from the 2022 census can be analysed in the HCSO Safe Centre

The 2022 census datasets are available in the Safe Centre of HCSO. In addition to the 1970, 1980, 1990, 2001 and 2011 censuses, researchers can now analyse the 10% sample files from the 2022 census in the secure research room environment provided by the Safe Centre. Access to research-prepared datasets containing individual data that cannot be directly identified will be possible after researcher accreditation, subject to a high level of statistical data protection and strict compliance with data protection legislation. Preparation for work in the Safe Centre is aided by data file descriptions and test files containing fictitious records.
