Monthly personal income

In 2018 the net monthly income of full-time and part-time employees including holiday bonuses (proportional 13th and 14th month) was €2 037 (Median).

Statistics Austria collects information about the monthly take-home pay from the main job for all employees in the Labour Force Survey and transmits information about the income deciles to Eurostat. Statistics Austria does not ask the respondents directly about their income, but uses administrative data from the central social insurance register and the tax register.
