Trust Towards Fellow Human Beings in Hungary According to the Most Commonly Applied Survey Tools

Based on various databases from a longer time frame, the paper reviews the most commonly applied survey tools used for the measurement of trust towards fellow human beings. The well-known international surveys aim to address the phenomenon of trust towards unknown others in different ways. These approaches are focused on certain distinct dimensions of the common theoretical background. However, all of the examined survey tools in this paper are considered as steady and refined questionnaire techniques in the literature. Therefore, a comparative analysis of these survey items helps to better understand their functionality, as well as the results they provide. The review of the examined databases draws special attention to Hungary in order to better describe the Hungarian trends and specificities of trust towards fellow human beings.
