HUNGARIAN STATISTICAL REVIEW, SPECIAL NUMBER 12
by Renáta Nagy, Councillor and István Sebestény, Senior Councillor, Hungarian Central Statistical Office
The Hungarian Central Statistical Office has been carrying out annual surveys on the nonprofit sector since 1993. A method of data collection and processing has been developed for the last 15 years. The study presents not only the methodology, but its function in the practice describing the features of the Hungarian civil sphere. This process is performed by different statistical indicators referring to 2006 and in time series. The data on the size, composition, finance and human resources of the sector can show a satisfying picture to foreign experts having interest in Hungarian nonprofit research.
