ATRACK (“Absolvent:innen-Tracking”, graduate tracking) is a register-based full survey of all graduates and dropouts from Austrian higher education institutions which was developed in partnership with the public universities, headed by the University of Vienna. The body of data enables the career starts and career paths of all graduates and dropouts to be evaluated statistically.
ATRACK can be used to evaluate the labour market status, gross salary of employees or the economic sector (ÖNACE) of the workplace according to demographic (e.g. gender, age) or study-related characteristics (e.g. type of study, ISCED 2013 fields of education and training) on certain reference dates before or after the students graduated/dropped out. The sources of data are the base registers of the Register-based Census and the Register-based Labour Market Statistics.
