Poverty of Hungarian seventh grade students and its effect on their further education plans

This paper examines the level of poverty among Hungarian seventh grade students and its effect on their future education plans. The data is based on the answers to a self-administered questionnaire of more than 9000 students from a research conducted by the Institute for Economic and Enterprise Research (IEER) in 2015. We find that a large group of students are deprived of basic necessities and that poor children plan to finish their studies earlier than non-poor children. Using mixed-effects regression models controlling for other possible factors affecting further education plans we show that the negative effect of poverty is substantial.

The 38th wave of the IEER Business Climate Survey was conducted in October 2016. This is the largest business climate survey in Hungary with regard to the number of participating companies. This year 3185 managers responded to the questionnaire on their business climate and short-term business expectations. The surveyed companies are representative to the Hungarian business sector in terms of economic performance, region and sector distribution. This analysis summarizes the results of the October 2016 survey. According to the new results of the IEER Business Climate Survey the IEER Business Climate Index decreased to +48 points in October 2016 from +49 points in April 2016, which is the second highest value in the history of the survey. Companies are still very positive about their current business climate, however, it seems that the continuing upward trend since October 2012 is broken. This is due to the fact that the expectations on investments (especially construction and machinery investments), profitability and stock orders are slightly more pessimistic than in the previous period. The value of the Uncertainty Index has increased by one point (October 2016: 48 points) compared to April 2016. This refers to the fact that the difference between the evaluations of the enterprises has not changed compared to the previous period.

The new (digital) revolution generates significant changes in the labour market. The result of the ‘skilled-biased technological change’ suggests the following expectations: the demand for unskilled workers will decrease and the demand for high educated labour force will significantly increase. The full automation of certain professions will result in a decrease in the number of work places. In the IEER research the possible effects of automation on the Hungarian labour market were studied with a primary focus on the effects on districts and counties.
