Miért élnek jobban az emberek a Dunántúlon, mint az Alföldön?

The science of regions is a new discipline of social science; its main components are geography, economy, sociology, political science, and the urban/technical sciences. 'Region' is a collective term of flexible interpretation, most of the time implying a certain part of a country, a province, a county, a zone, a district, or a territorial unit that can be defined on the basis of several criteria. Three main types of regions have become accepted: the homogeneous or functional region, the hub region, and the planning/statistical/programming region. Based on the number of characteristics considered, regions with one characteristic feature, or several features, and "total" regions may be distinguished. The regional GDP provides the basis for comparison of the regions under scrutiny, but other indicators are also applied in measuring or assessing their levels of development. Regional difference may be due to difference between the capital and the country, the West and the East, and to the position of the given region within the network of settlements. As a result of successful regional policy and de-centralisation, Hungary is becoming a dominant factor in the regional evolution of Central Europe. The objective of regional policy is to achieve favourable living conditions in all the communities of the country.
