Description

In addition to the unemployed according to the international definition, other groups can be identified that are potentially available to the labour market. For example, there are also persons aged 15 to 64 years who are neither employed nor unemployed (economically inactive persons) according to the definitions of the International Labour Organization (ILO), who are not looking for work but would in principle like to work (willingness to work). Those persons who could additionally start working within two weeks are referred to as the labour reserve.

Persons with willingness to work or in the labour reserve can be described according to gender, age, education, nationality, age of the youngest child and Bundesland (NUTS2). In addition, a time series is offered. The results come from the Austrian microcensus labour force survey (sample survey).
