Austria -Women on the labour market -March 04, 2015

The increase in female employment is mostly due to a rise in part-time work.

Data from the statistical office reveal that women have successfully caught up in education and employment in the past decades. In 2012/13, 58.7% of all high school graduates were female. The employment rate of women aged 15 to 64 years rose from 61.6% (2003) to 67.6% (2013). Yet, the increase in female employment is mostly due to a rise in part-time work. There has been a slight decrease in the gender pay gap. In 2013, the average gross hourly earnings of women were by 23.0% lower than those of men, while in 2006 this difference had been 25.5%.
