- Hungary Around the Clock
The survey took into account the access of people over 65 to the labour market and their possibilities for informal learning, reports news website Quartz.
The average life expectancy and the satisfaction of the elderly with their life were also factors in the index calculation, as well as the sense of fairness and food security.
Hungary scored particularly badly on life expectancy and life satisfaction over 50, as well as productivity and engagement, defined by Quartz as “the number of opportunities for elderly people to contribute to society, calculated by retirement age, employment over 65, volunteer hours over 65, and informal educational opportunities”.
Hungary is at the bottom with 23 points, behind Estonia and Poland, both with 31 points, and Slovenia with 33 points.
The list is led by Norway, Sweden, the US and the Netherlands.
