    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.

    Student Mobility from the Best High Schools in Hungary to Foreign Universities – 2017

    The IEER analysis examines the plans for higher education of students from the best high schools in Budapest, Pest and Győr-Moson-Sopron Counties. The results show that every tenth student out of all the students of the best high schools submits their application to a foreign higher educational institution. Most of these students plan to reside in their chosen city not only for the duration of their higher education, but for a longer term.

    The Expected Impacts of the Introduction of Online Cash Registers into the Taxi Industry

    The analysis entitled “The Expected Impacts of the Introduction of Online Cash Registers into the Taxi Industry” by the Institute for Economic and Enterprise Research (IEER) studies the possible effects of the obligatory use of online cash registers in the taxi industry. The analysis took the following aspects into consideration: the characteristics of the Hungarian and more specifically the Budapest taxi industry, the legal environment and economic theories on tax payer behaviour.

    Impacts of automation on the labor market in Hungary

    The new (digital) revolution generates significant changes in the labor 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 labor 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 labor market were studied with a primary focus on the effects on districts and counties.

    Where would students like to continue their education? The continuing education plans of students from the country’s best high schools

    The IEER analysis examines plans for further education of students from the nation’s best high schools. The results show that a vast majority of students want to continue their education, namely at national institutions of higher education, and only 7% of them would study abroad (as well). The available statistics also indicate that Hungarian students do not participate in large numbers in (long-term) foreign study, but in recent years their numbers show a growing trend.

    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.

    Where do I want to continue my studies? The further education plans of students from the best national high schools - 2015

    Only few of the Hungarian high school students intend to attend undergraduate programmes abroad, although their numbers show a growing trend in recent years. This is what IEER research examining the intentions of continuing education reveals, in addition to the fact that the Hungarian school system is unable to overcome the disadvantages caused by family background, that is, promote social mobility. Based on the 2013 National Skills Assessment the best national high schools receive only a very small proportion of students whose father has a low level of education or low labour market status. Our results also suggest that at the post-secondary level the education system reinforces existing inequalities. This can be concluded from the fact that the ratio of students who apply to the prestigious universities in Budapest is significantly lower in the lagging northern and lowland regions (even in the best high schools of these areas) than in the region of Central Hungary. The study was based on 770 responses conducted among the graduate students of thirty Hungarian public high schools, which were the best within their region according to the 2013 National Skills Assessment.

With this we would like to help individuals, institutes and policymakers. The overview is a continuation, the actualization of certain points, and extension of a similar study published two years ago by the Institute for Economic and Enterprise Research (IEER).

    The implementation of wage compensation in the private sector

    The wage compensation policy helped to offset the negative effect on employment of expected wage increases. The IEER study presents the effects on employment due to the legislative changes of 2012 using data from the National Labour Centre’s Wage Survey and the Hungarian Labor Market Forecast.

    How Good is the Purchasing Managers' Index at Forecasting?

    The latest GVI study examined the predictive ability of the Purchasing Managers Index. PMI forecasts are more accurate in forecasting a growth in industrial production volume as opposed to a decline. However, upon examining the extent of these changes, a significant correlation can be seen in the changes to the PMI and changes in industrial production three months later.
