The aim of this study is to reveal the effects of housing systems, farm sizes and production levels on the economic indicators of Hungarian table egg production. This research is based on the farm-level cost and income data and the related weights of egg production farms between 2003-2015 from the Hungarian FADN database. These data were processed using descriptive statistics and correlation and regression analyses were performed to evaluate the correlations between each indicator. The results show that table egg can be more effectively produced using enriched cage system as opposed to barns. The unit cost of egg is lower in larger farm size, however, other factors also affect its value. The increase of production level is also in a positive correlation with the examined economic indicators.
