Statistics of transition, transition in statistics: The Hungarian Experience

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The paper gives an overview of the Hungarian experiences in the process of the adaptation of statistical standards in the market economies. It emphasizes the conflicts between the previous practice and the new requirements in a changing environment and on the other hand the importance of the ińtuitive adaptation of the different methods. The semantic meaning of transition implies a passage by whatever means from one point to another. In this sense I will attempt to review, in what follows, the processes that have started in the Hungarian statistics system in the past few years.
