A new study by András Igari, an expert of HETFA titled “Spatiotemporal Inequalities of Excess Mortality in Europe during the first two years of the Covid-19 pandemic” was published. This insightful article is available in the latest issue (Volume 13, Number 3) of Regional Statistics, the journal of the Hungarian Central Statistical Office.

The article examined the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mortality rates in Europe and explored the spatial and temporal disparities that emerged in the first two years. The analysis highlights that while the initial wave of the pandemic had a more severe impact on major urban centres in Western Europe, subsequent waves have disproportionately affected the less developed regions of Central and Eastern Europe, including Hungary.
