Description

The General Income Report under the Federal Constitutional Act on the Limitation of Holders of Public Offices is prepared every other year on behalf of the Court of Audit and relates to the two previous years. The report depicts the average income, broken down by women and men, and – in compliance with the legal remit – broken down by sector, occupational group and job position. The detailed evaluations are based on administrative data (wage tax data, income tax data, data from the Umbrella Organization of Social Security Institutions), supplemented by data from the microcensus. The report offers a presentation and analysis of the income of employees, self-employed persons and pensioners. In addition to the development of income from 1998, the first reporting year from which a uniform database is available, the report also includes a comparison of the federal states. A "Statistical Annex" provides detailed tables.
