The vast majority of Hungarians (87 percent) agree that mothers should be supported in the labour market and women returning to work after childbirth should receive help, according to research published by the Mária Kopp Institute for Demography and Families (KINCS) on the occasion of International Women's Day. Most of those surveyed prefer to work with a superior who has children, be it a man or a woman.
As a result of the personal income tax exemption for mothers under the age of 30 and mothers with four children, the amount of the infant care fee (CSED) and the child care fee (GYED) will also increase, thus providing additional financial support to the affected families. The Mária Kopp Institute for Demography and Families (KINCS) calculated what exactly this means in practice.
KINCS created a leaflet in English in order to provide an overview of the Hungarian family policies enacted in the last 12 years. This info material gives a brief summary of the fundamentals of our family policies, as well as the cornerstones and the results of the family centred governance of the country.
Marriage provides happiness and emotional security, according to Hungarians, reveals a survey published by the Mária Kopp Institute for Demography and Families (KINCS) on the occasion of Marriage Week.

This is mainly due to the policy of reducing utility costs and, in addition, to the growing energy awareness of Hungarians.
