This means that the country’s net migration rate was positive. The favorable data is mainly due to fewer people choosing to leave the country last year.
On top of the 20,000 returning Hungarians, around 8,000 Hungarians born abroad also migrated to the country. As a result, 10,000 more people returned to the country than left it.
KSH’s statistical data highlights that last year’s international migration reduced the population decrease by 27,000 people. Also, in addition to the net migration of 10,000, another 17,000 foreign citizens came to the country, primarily from the Hungarian diaspora.
