2012 Hungarian Housing Poverty report

In June, Habitat for Humanity Hungary released its annual report on the situation of housing poverty in Hungary. This is the second study on the topic, the first one was launched in June last year. The 2012 report aims to assess housing problems and trends based on available data and analyze policy developments over the past year, from the time of the first report.

The situation with housing poverty in the country has not improved since the 2011 report. Negative trends continue as more people live in poverty and the number of people in insecure and inadequate homes is on the rise, too. National socio-economic and policy measures continue to lag behind. Typically, these measures fail to serve the most disadvantaged parts society and provide only limited responses to problems that affect many people.
