According to Hungarian deputy minister of Human Resources Katalin Novak, recent demographic data in Hungary, including an increase in the number of marriages, are cause for being optimistic.

Novak pointed out to the Polish Press Agency that all of the demographic indexes in Hungary changed for the better in 2019, particularly the number of marriages (65,300), which has never been that high in the last 30 years and is almost double the number from 2010.

At the same time, the number of divorces dropped by 30 percent.

“Birthrate has also stabilized on a higher level. We are being optimistic,” she said, referring to December 2019 data which showed that the number of births in that period grew by 8.2 percent compared to December 2018.
