The activity status according to the definitions of the International Labour Organization (ILO) divides the population living in private households (excluding persons undertaking military or civilian service) into employed, unemployed and economically inactive persons. Most results are presented according to this ILO breakdown. The employment status according to the subsistence concept or self-assignment distinguishes the following social groups: employed, unemployed, retired, permanently unable to work, in education and training, managing a household, undertaking military or civilian service or other.

Both employment statuses can be broken down to gender, age, nationality, education and regional characteristics, among others. In addition, time series are provided. The results come from the Microcensus Labour Force Survey (sample survey), the Register-based Census and the Register-based Labour Market Statistics (administrative data). 

S: STATISTICS AUSTRIA, Labour Force Survey (Microcensus). Compiled on 5 June 2024. – According to international concept (ILO). – Population in private households, without compulsory military or civilian service.
