The Structure of Earnings Survey (SES) is conducted by Statistics Austria every four years. The current survey refers to October 2022 and collects data on wages and salaries as well as working hours of employed persons. This information enables detailed analyses of the structure and distribution of earnings according to economic sectors, occupations, age, gender and other characteristics.
The survey is carried out throughout the European Union according to harmonised standards and provides reliable and meaningful comparisons of earnings between the individual Member States. The results for Austria can be found on our website under Structure of Earnings.
