Thomas Horvath is Senior Economist at WIFO and has been working Research Group "Labour Market, Income and Social Security"
since 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.
