Austria - Vienna lags behind regions in disposable income - December 31, 2015

For the first time since records began the westernmost state Vorarlberg has the highest disposable income per capita of €23,300. This is attributed to its strong manufacturing industry and the fact that many people from Vorarlberg travel to Switzerland to work. Households in Tyrol are also doing relatively well with a disposable income of €22,100, due to its strong service and tourism industry which has seen employment rise in the region. A growing population and high unemployment rate has seen average earnings in Vienna steadily decrease since 2011; the capital has the lowest level of disposable income after Carinthia.
