With almost half of the total population (46.85%) of the population living in rural isolated places, Hungary is one of the top rural EUmember countries. The main goal of this research in the paper is the analysis of the ten-year period starting from 2004 until the beginning of the most recently adopted the Hungarian Rural Development Programme (2014-2020). In order to achieve this goal, the paper presents the main functional EU and Hungarian efforts or decisions that pertain to the process of rural development in the country. The accent is put on testing the relationships by performing correlation analysis of the ten socio-economic variables in these regions. They are rural GDP, population density, medical doctors, hospital beds, students, roads, unemployment, mortality, infant mortality and migrations. The research results of the performed correlation analysis points to different conlusions. While some of the relationships in the matrix are statistically significant (either positively or negatively related with different strength), others are not statistically significant. The results point to many important conclusions about the Hungarian rural development from 2004 until 2014. Besides the great efforts implemented by the EU official authorities and Hungarian rural development networks, the negative trends are still present in rural communities across Hungary. Consequently, the present and future success of the most recent Hungarian Rural Development Programme (2014-2020) is very challenging and depends on many variables in the present world of worldwide integration and globalization.
Keywords: EU, Hungary, predominantly rural regions, socioeconomic trends, correlation analysis
