nstitute for Economic and Enterprise Research

Education can yield significant advantages in the labour market. It may lead to higher employment rate, better jobs and higher wages. In addition, educational attainment also correlates with life expectancy, the individuals' health status, interpersonal relationships and other social, political and cultural trends. In this month, the Bulletin's first section analyses the relationship between subjective well-being and educational attainment. In the second part, readers find a summary of the World Economic Forum's Global Human Capital Report, a comprehensive analysis of human capital development around the world. In this regard, Hungary scores low in comparison with other EU member states and other countries in the region.
