Thomas Horvath has been working in WIFO's Research Group "Labour Market, Income and Social Security" since December 2010.
His research interests include changes in the demand for and supply of labour (e.g., within the framework of regular medium-term
industry and occupational forecasts on behalf of the AMS), evaluation of (active) labour market policy measures and migration.
Another focus of his work is the analysis of longer-term sociodemographic developments by means of dynamic microsimulation,
e.g., in the H2020-EU project WELTRANSIM which examines the distributional effects implied by the ageing of the population
from a long-term perspective. He is also continuously involved in the preparation of the WIFO Economic Outlook and is a national
expert in the Skillsnet network of CEDEFOP. After studying Economics at the University of Vienna and a semester abroad in
Amsterdam, he worked at the Institute of Economics at the University of Linz, where he wrote his dissertation on microeconometric
labour market analyses in 2015. In addition to numerous WIFO studies and several book contributions, he has also published
in international professional journals, including Journal of Public Economics, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Regional
Studies and Labour Economics.
