Abstract

In Southern Great Plain and in Northern Hungary, poverty is a big issue, not only in country, but also in European context. Both poverty rate and relative poverty gap excess Hungarian and European average. As these regions are economically backward, too, my study examines whether economic growth (or recession) has an effect on poverty and if so, what kind of effect it is.
