Austrian labour market in 2021: gradual recovery in the course of the year
"Despite the Corona pandemic, the labour market in Austria experienced a strong upswing in 2021. Above all, the openings of the gastronomy sector in the second quarter caused employment to rise, and in the summer the employment figures recovered further due to seasonal factors. The renewed lockdown in Q4 only slightly slowed the upward trend on the labour market. In 2021, the average number of employed persons was 4.3 million; the 283 700 job seekers were offset by 146 000 vacancies, more than ever before since the start of the Job Vacancy Survey by Statistics Austria," explains Statistics Austria Director General Tobias Thomas.
