Coping with macro shocks: coping strategies of households during the crisis in Hungary

The research project titled 'Coping with macro shocks: success and failure of household adjustment during the crisis in Hungary' has ended. The aim of the research was to assess how Hungarian households coped with the recent economic crisis, in terms of the households' labor supply, consumption, savings and debts, and human capital investments.


TÁRKI Household Monitor

In terms of its research topics, the Household Monitor is the continuation of the Hungarian Household Panel, without its longitudinal character. Its purpose is the quick assessment of the changes in the stratification of society and in social inequalities. The survey is primarily focussed on issues concerning the labour market and incomes, consumer attitudes, savings, economic expectations and economic behaviour, as well as changing social relations are also included among the subjects of the survey. The survey is supported by several governmental and state institutions, as well as by private institutions through research commissions.
