The statistical body of the European Union, Eurostat, says that some 17% of Hungarians between the ages of 20 and 34 were neither employed nor on a course of education or vocational training in 2018.
The NEET (neither in employment nor in education and training) rate was a fraction higher than the 16.5% ratio for the European Union as a whole. The rate in Hungary was higher than that in the Czech Republic (15%) and Poland (16.4%), but under the rate in Slovakia (20.6%).
Hungary’s NEET rate has fallen almost every year since 2010, when it stood at 25.2%, Eurostat noted.
