As part of an improving trend since 2010, 2.2 million women worked in Hungary last year, which is a record, even exceeding the mandatory employment period of the Kádár system, the Szent István Institute announced, based on a recent study of women in the labor market between 1900-2022, writes hrportal.hu.

Some 13 years ago, the employment rate of women aged 20-64 was 59%, which rose to 75.3% last year.

Meanwhile, the number of unemployed women was 207,000 in 2010 and is now 80,000. The number of inactive women is also the lowest ever at 627,000.

The institute also pointed out that the employment rate of mothers with children under the age of six has risen significantly in recent years, reaching 73% by 2021, which improved the country's position to the ninth best in the European Union.
