Regional Accounts (RA) calculate gross regional product (GRP, regional GDP) as well as the following aggregates by industry for the Austrian Länder (federal provinces): gross value added at basic prices, gross fixed capital formation, compensation of employees, employment and total hours worked. The monetary aggregates are calculated at current prices, except gross value added and gross regional product which are also published at previous year’s prices. Employment data (total and employees) are published according to two different concepts: number of jobs and number of persons. The number of jobs are released in total and by industry (A17). Jobs include second, third, etc. jobs of the same person. Persons cover only the principal (main) activity. In contrast to the number of persons, the number of jobs exclude persons temporarily not at work but who have an assurance of return to work (e.g. persons on parental leave). The number of persons by industry (A10) can be provided on request.
Gross value added and gross regional product
are also published at previous year’s prices in terms of volume growth
rates, back to the year 2001. As for the figures at current prices the
data are provided at t
Regional Accounts data are consistent with the annual National Accounts published in September 2019.
In 2018 all NUTS 2 regions showed a real growth of gross regional product (GRP) on the previous year, with volume growth rates ranging between 3.8% (Carinthia) and 1.3% (Burgenland). Total Austrian GDP at previous year’s prices increased by 2.4%. Besides the above mentioned, Lower Austria (3.2%) and Styria (2.7%) achieved growth rates of GRP above the Austrian average. The growth rate in Upper Austria was on average. Vorarlberg, Salzburg, Vienna and Tyrol showed growth rates below the Austrian average (ranging from 2.2% to 1.7%).
Gross regional product per capita facilitates the comparison of economic power of the Austrian Länder. In 2018, Salzburg continued having the highest GRP per inhabitant with €52 400, ahead of Vienna (€51 000). They were followed by Vorarlberg (€48 500) and Tyrol (€46 100). Upper Austria, with €44 600, also was above the Austrian average of €43 600. Styria, Carinthia and Lower Austria, with figures between €40 000 and €36 500, lagged behind, as well as Burgenland, which continued to be bottom of the table with €30 700.
Please note that GRP relates to the place of performance (place of work), whereas the population figures used for calculating GRP per capita relate to the place of residence, i.e. transregional commuter movements are not taken into account. Burgenland and parts of Lower Austria, for example, are traditional commuter regions.
