Labour Market during the Corona Crisis
Labour Market Data of June 2020
The measures and restrictions due to the corona pandemic
had a massive impact on the Austrian labour market. Their extensive
loosening has led to an improvement of the situation overall, but some
sectors like “Accommodation and Food Service Activities” and “Arts,
Entertainment and Recreation” still have to deal with the repercussions
of the crisis.
On the other hand, employment in the sector “Construction” has almost recovered by now. It also differs from sector to sector which group of persons find a new employment more quickly, but in general, men were more likely to re-enter the labour market than women, and Austrian citizens have taken up their next employment faster than foreign nationals.
-19 Mortality in Austria
About 4% of deaths in March and April 2020 due to COVID
In Austria 588 people died of COVID
Overall, in March and April2020 mortality (based on age-standardised rates) was 1% higher than in the years before. Most of the people affected were elderly people with comorbidities such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease or kidney disease. Mortality due to COVID
Statistics of Advance Turnover Tax Returns
Current data - Monthly results from January to May 2020 with line of business analysis of the shutdown as well as results for 2019 and the 1st quarter of 2020
The turnover tax statistics of the year 2019 presents
a total of
The results in the first quarter of 2020 showed a decline in taxable turnover of 3.0% to EUR 174.9 billion. Tax-free turnover of EUR 51.7 billion was reported, which corresponds to a decline of 4.0%. Exports, which are also tax-free, were even more affected by the COVID
CPI of July 2020
The inflation rate of the Consumer Price Index (CPI,
base year 2015) in July 2020 was 1.7%. (June 2020: 1.1%). Clothing prices
pushed the inflation rate to a higher level due to less significant
summer sales this year. Fuels remained the most important price damper.
Housing, water and energy
The index level of the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP, base year 2015) was 108.18 in June 2020, with the harmonised inflation rate at 1.8%.
Just like in June 2020 the COVID
Digital Transformation in National Accounts
This article offers a brief extract of recent developments in the discussion on how the rise of the digital economy affects the framework and models of National Accounts. For this purpose, digital business models like digital platforms and digital trade, are analysed from a conceptual and technical perspective and if and how they can be integrated properly in National Accounts aggregates.
Road Traffic Accidents in 2019
Decline in accidents, but more fatalities
In 2019, a total of 416 persons died in road traffic
accidents in Austria, an increase of 1.7% compared to 2018. Among those,
16 children were fatally injured, this means an increase of 13 children
or 433% compared to 2018. In contrast, the number of road traffic accidents
June was the month with the highest number of accidents in 2019, with an average of 182 injuries and almost two deaths per day (56 deaths in total). By contrast, in January and February, the two months with the fewest accidents, 20 people each died. For pedestrians, November (13 deaths) and December (9 deaths) were particularly dangerous.
Small-scale representation through experimental methods – Machine Learning for Sample Data and Geographic information systems
The inventive project “Machine Learning for Sample Data Geographic information systems” (LEARN4SDGis) aimed at presenting sample data from social statistics on a small scale. In particular, a cartographic presentation of indicators was developed. This was done in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN 2030 Agenda. For this machine learning methods were applied while integrating different data sources. Cartographic presentations of poverty, health and education were obtained as first results. As these data are not yet fully developed in terms of methodology or harmonization in European context, they are labeled “Experimental Statistics”.
