Migration within Austria

Austrian migration statistics show that migration has a substantial impact on the regional distribution of the Austrian population. This can be equally attributed to internal and international migration flows. Overall, there were 797 666 cases of people migrating within Austria in 2018, as compared to 801 624 cases in 2017. For the largest part, internal migration is confined to short distances, usually within a municipality or between municipalities of the same district. Yet, migration gains primarily concentrate in the structurally favoured agglomerations of Austria, whereas migration losses generally dominate in peripheral regions.

Due to the situation of Vienna as Austria’s single metropolis in the east of the country, it is here that gains in internal migration occur more widespread than in the other parts of Austria. Migration flows were largest 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. In absolute numbers, more Austrian nationals migrate within Austria, albeit migration rates are higher for foreign citizens.
