Migration overview

Starting from the beginning of the 1970ies, Austria’s population growth has almost exclusively been caused by migration gains from abroad since birth surpluses have been more or less negligible. At the same time, both international and internal migration gains and losses have been distributed very unevenly across Austria. Hence, migration movements showed regional variations: while larger agglomeration areas have been experiencing migration gains, rural areas have been facing migration losses.

1 056 077 Austrian inhabitants changed their residence in 2018. Among them, three quarters (75.5% or 797 666 people) moved their main place of residence within a given municipality or to a different municipality within Austria, whereas 24.5% (258 411 people) moved across the Austrian border. 146 856 arrivals from abroad and 111 555 departures to foreign countries resulted in an international net migration gain of 35 301 people.

In 2018, the number of internal migration movements (797 666) was slightly lower than in the previous year when 801 624 cases were recorded. The majority of these internal migrations involved relatively short distances, with around 55% of moves within the same municipality. Only 14% of all migrations were migrations between federal territories.
