Unemployed, seeking work

The number of unemployed and employed persons extracted from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) complies with the ILO definition. According to ILO definition unemployed persons are defined as persons who are without work during reference week, are currently available to work and have either actively been seeking work during the past four weeks or have already found a job to start within the next three months. The LFS also informs on persons who do not meet the ILO criteria for unemployment but who are willing and available to work within short notice (labour reserve). 

The national definition for the number of unemployed as well as the unemployment rate published by the Austrian Public Employment Service (AMS) is based on the number of unemployed persons registered at AMS and the number of employees recorded by the Main Association of Austrian Social Insurance Institutions.

Please consult our database for yearly and quarterly data on unemployed and jobseekers.
