Labour force forecasts

The number of people in the labour force will rise in the future if the trends in immigration and labour market participation continue. According to Statistics Austria's labour force projection, the size of the economically active population (people in employment and unemployment) will increase by 4% until 2050. In 2018, there were 4.58 million people in the labour force on annual average; in 2030 there will be 4.71 million (+3%) and in 2050 4.75 million (+4%). No further growth is expected in the second half of our century.
