In July 2021, the average monthly number of employees was 4,704,000. The employment rate in May-July was 73.3 percent, up 1.8 percentage points from a year earlier.

During this period, the employment rate was the highest in Budapest (78.9 per cent) and the lowest in Somogy county (65.7 per cent) – according to a recent CSO from the aggregation.

In May-July, 4 million 476 thousand people worked in the domestic primary labor market, 75 thousand more than a year earlier, while the number of people working abroad (84 thousand) decreased by 16 thousand.

The largest reductions were in trade (-23 thousand) and social welfare (-15 thousand); there were still 5,000 fewer people working in accommodation services and 12,000 more in hospitality than a year earlier.

The proportion of people working remotely or in a home office was 8.4 per cent, 3.9 percentage points lower than a year earlier.
