    OECD Employment Outlook 2014 - Key findings for Austria

    At 5%, Austria’s unemployment rate is high in a historical perspective though still lower than in most OECD countries. The same is true for the youth unemployment rate, which at 10% is twice the level of the rate for the total labour force. While the employment rate in 2014 is above the rate before and during the crisis, the reversal in the increase in unemployment is yet to come.
