Statistics on the labour market provide information about labour force supply and demand. Statistics on the labour force supply subdivide the population according to activity status (economically actives, economically inactives). Basically, results on employment and unemployment are available according to two different definitions: the ILO Concept, which can be used for international comparisons, and national definitions (employment that is subject to social insurance contributions and which is registered at the Main Association of Austrian Insurance Institutions, or unemployed persons who are registered at the Austrian Public Employment Service). Data for international comparisons is based on the Labour Force Survey which is part of the micro-census.
Apart from society’s interest in the situation and the development of the labour market, labour market data and analyses also form the basis for decisions on labour market policy. An EU-wide harmonised database on labour market policy in the member states aims to evaluate labour market policies at European level.
