- Hungary Around the Clock
The Hungarian figure is slightly above the EU average as nearly 4% of the entire EU population works far from their homeland.
Romania is the absolute record-setter with nearly 20% of its working-age population employed in other EU states. Germany is at the other end of the spectrum with less than 1%.
The data show that Hungarian emigration picked up over the past 10 years: while only 1.5% were working abroad in 2007, the figure rose to 2.4% by 2012.
The working-age population means people between 20 and 64 years of age.
