The annual, monthly, weekly and diurnal distribution of Carpathian and M≯7 earthquakes through out the world have been investigated together with the effect of the Moon. The annual distribution of the M≯7 earthquakes shows long-term stability. The monthly variation of seismic activity in case of Hungarian seismic events over the period from 1964 to 2004 shows remarkable maximum between May and October and a minimum between January and April. In the Carpathian dataset for 1964-2004 characteristic peak were found in the daily distribution around 13h and minimum at 8h and 18h (local time). There was no statistically significant lunar influence detected.
