System-critical Employment in Times of Demographic Challenges

WIFO Study Commissioned by the Vienna Chamber of Labour
A recent WIFO study commissioned by the Vienna Chamber of Labour provides insights into the age composition of system-critical employment across various sectors in Austria for the reference year 2023.

Due to the high proportion of women and specific age structure characteristics, particular emphasis is placed on female employees. WIFO Senior Economist Julia Bock-Schappelwein also offers recommendations on how to address demographic challenges in system-critical occupations.
