The direction and extent of the domestic population movement, which was considered more or less constant for some time, changed in the past year, according to profitline.hu.

Based on national data, the halt in the increasing rate of population movement since 2014, presumably due to the coronavirus epidemic in 2020, resulted in nearly 7% fewer permanent changes of residence during last year than the year prior.

Overall, fewer people sought new permanent residence in 2020, the migration balance of cities was negative, while the attractiveness of villages continued to grow. The most popular counties were Pest, Veszprém, Győr-Moson-Sopron, Fejér, and Somogy.
