Employment Position in the Hungarian Least Developed Micro-regions (LHH)


  • Katalin Lipták

    () (University of Miskolc)


The paper describes the position of the least developed micro-regions (LHH) that are to be supported by the current Hungarian complex programme, with special regard to their employment and unemployment position. I have a double aim with this work. On the one hand, I aim at describing the position of LHH micro-regions in the national context with the help of different statistical indicators, setting up diagnosis and formulating breaking points and proposals that can generate projects supporting catching up in the future. On the other hand, with statistical-econometric calculations, I aim at proving that the methodology of the micro-regional classification of the governmental decree 311/2007. (XI.17.) has a different result when only labour market indicators are included in the calculations, instead of the all applied complex indicators.
