Labour force forecast

According to the forecast of Statistics Austria, the number of the labour force in Austria should remain relatively constant in the coming years. According to the trend variant, the demographic supply of the labour force, i.e. the sum of the self-employed and family workers, employees and the unemployed as well as military and civilian servants, will be only 0.6% lower in 2050 than in 2020 (4.58 million) and thus amount to 4.56 million. Relative to the total population, however, the share of the labour force will decrease from 51.4% in 2020 to 47.3% in 2050.
