According to the BBJ
The number of first-job-seekers grew 1.1% year on year to 45,439. The numbers reflect the layoffs in the public sector, since it is the Central Hungary Region that saw the largest increase, said ÁFSz chief director Károly Pirisi. Also, the growing number of the underprivileged in the system makes the statistics even worse – as they have even more trouble finding jobs, he added.
The ratio of unemployment in the Central Hungary Region is 3.5%, in North Hungary 17.3% and in the North Alföld Region 16.2%. Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg County registered the highest number: 20.6%. The employers reported 27,000 new unsubsidized jobs in September, 17.9% less than a year ago, mainly for unskilled workers, offering a Ft 84,100 gross salary.
Well, I will get to the bottom of all this eventually, but here is the chart just so you can see for yourself.
