Do young humanities and arts graduates have a labor market disadvantage in Hungary?

The study examines the employment status (i) and wages (ii) of young humanities and arts graduates compared to other graduates in Hungary using the 2013 data of the Hungarian Graduate Career Tracking System. The dataset has several limitations regarding reliability and validity, which we attempted to correct to improve the quality of our estimations. The results requires further research. We find that amongst males the conditional overall employment differences for humanities and arts graduates without a degree requirement are not statistically significant. As for jobs requiring tertiary education and salaries disadvantage is present only compared to engineering, information technology and economics or business graduates. Amongst females we find that the conditional employment differences vary greatly by the definition of degree requirement, so our results are unequivocal. However salary disadvantage is statistically significant compared to engineering, information technology and economics or business graduates. Our results suggest that in Hungary young graduates with these three degrees have more advantageous labor market outcomes than others, but the situation of humanities and arts graduates does not differ greatly from the rest of the disciplines.
