Migration within Austria

Overall, there were 781 472 cases of people migrating within Austria in 2020, which is about 17 000 cases less than in the previous year (2019: 798 420). Internal migration influences the distribution of the Austrian population with regional differences. The majority of internal migrations involved relatively short distances, with around 54% of moves within the same municipality. Only 15% of all migrations were migrations between federal territories. Yet, migration gains primarily concentrate in the structurally favoured agglomerations of Austria, whereas migration losses generally dominate in peripheral regions.

Due to the location and size of Vienna, gains in internal migration occur more widespread in the east of Austria than in the other parts of the country. In absolute numbers, more Austrian nationals migrate within Austria, albeit migration rates are higher for foreign citizens. The largest migration flows occur between urban centres and their surrounding districts, with most regional capitals losing inhabitants to suburban regions. Only young adults (between 18 and 26 of age) predominantly migrate to larger cities for higher education and to seize opportunities on the job market.
