Disposable income and distribution accounts of households by Länder (federal provinces) (NUTS 2)

According to Statistics Austria's latest calculations, the disposable income of households per capita (including non-profit institutions serving households) ranged from €23 000 (Vienna) to €25 600 (Vorarlberg) in 2018. Data of primary and secondary income accounts are consistent with the non-financial sector accounts (as from September 2019).

By implementing ESA 2010 the delivery deadline was shortened by one year (Reference year 2018 is now available).

In 2018, private households in Vorarlberg recorded the highest disposable income per capita at €25 600, ahead of Lower Austria at €25 300. Salzburg and Burgenland had the third highest disposable income per capita at €24 900 each. Upper Austria was also above the Austrian average of €24 300, while Tyrol and Styria were slightly below it. Disposable income per capita was also below the average in Carinthia. Private households in Vienna had the lowest per capita income at €23 000.

Differences in disposable income per capita between NUTS 2 regions are rather low. Over the past decades the disparities between regions tended to decrease.

The primary income (balance of the allocation of primary income account) of households is the income received by households as employment and property income due to their participation in the production process. On the resources side the allocation of primary income account comprises operating surplus/mixed income, compensation of employees and property income. The uses side is composed of (paid) property income.

The secondary distribution of income account reflects the redistribution of (primary) income through monetary transfers (income and property taxes, social contributions, social benefits other than social benefits in kind, other current transfers). The balancing item of the secondary distribution of income account of the household sector is the disposable income.
