520    In the past half-century every Central and East European 
       society has been twice subject to transformation. 
       Initially, Hungary was transformed by Communist-style 
       modernization, increasing industry, expanding secondary 
       education and improving health. The second shock was the 
       collapse of the Communist regime and the introduction of 
       democratic institutions and a market economy. How much or 
       how little impact has institutional change had on the 
       lives of ordinary people? Census and survey data, tables 
       and figures highlight the extent of long-term social, 
       economic and political change in Hungary from 1945 to 
       1998. It thus shows what was changing in the Communist era
       and what was stagnating - and the impact of introducing 
       democracy and market economy. To evaluate the tempo of 
       change, comparison is made with Germany, Austria and other
       Central European post-Communist countries.
