Macroeconomic Effects of Shorter Working Hours in Austria (Makroökonomische Effekte einer Arbeitszeitanpassung in Österreich)
Aktuelle Forschungsprojekte (in Arbeit)
Auftraggeber: Kammer für Arbeiter und Angestellte für Wien
Studie von: Österreichisches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung
The project estimates the sectoral and macroeconomic effects of shorter working hours in Austria. The starting point of the analysis is a (hypothetical) scenario in which working hours of employees are adjusted by means of collective bargaining and company regulations in such a way that they correspond to their individual preferences. The change in the sectoral and macroeconomic average working time is calculated from microdata (labour force survey) under the assumption that all employees reduce or increase their working time to the preferred level. This is then the starting point for estimating the sectoral and macroeconomic effects.

Standing Research Committee for the Public Employment Service Austria ("Standing Research Committee" zur Arbeitsmarktpolitik in der Corona-Krise)
Aktuelle Forschungsprojekte (in Arbeit)
Auftraggeber: Arbeitsmarktservice Österreich – Bundesministerium für Arbeit, Familie und Jugend – Bundesministerium für Arbeit (BMA)
Studie von: Österreichisches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung – Institut für Höhere Studien – Synthesis Forschung GmbH
With the outbreak of the pandemic-related crisis in Austria in March 2020, a "Standing Research Committee" was established on behalf of the Public Employment Service Austria (AMS) and the Federal Ministry of Labour. This committee takes on the task of developing and processing expertise in the area of analysis and forecasting of labour market developments as well as the possible use of measures and initiatives to combat the labour market consequences of the crisis and to remedy the longer-term consequences, and to discuss these in a committee of experts. The Standing Research Committee is coordinated by WIFO and consists of experts from the AMS, the Federal Ministry of Labour and the institutes IHS, Synthesis and WIFO.

Development of working time and employment in Austria (Entwicklung von Arbeitszeit und Beschäftigung in Österreich)
Aktuelle Forschungsprojekte (in Arbeit)
Studie von: Österreichisches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung
Auftraggeber: Kammer für Arbeiter und Angestellte für Wien
In the two major crises of the last 12 years (financial market and economic crisis, COVID-19 crisis), the drastic slump in production and value added was only reflected on the labour market to a significantly lesser extent. This is largely due to a reduction in the number of hours worked per employee. Although the use of short-time work contributed to this decline in working hours, it was by no means its sole cause, especially during the financial market and economic crisis. This study draws on data on macroeconomic developments, working time trends and the use of short-time work. It examines whether, in which economic phases and to what extent changes in working hours influence the relationship between economic growth and employment and to what extent the development of these two variables has decoupled.

AMS customer segmentation as a basis for impact-oriented labour market policy (AMS-KundInnensegmentierung als Grundlage für wirkungsorientierte Arbeitsmarktpolitik)
Aktuelle Forschungsprojekte (in Arbeit)
Auftraggeber: Kammer für Arbeiter und Angestellte für Wien – Österreichischer Gewerkschaftsbund
Studie von: Österreichisches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung
The AMS is currently testing a data-based segmentation of unemployed clients with regard to their chances of re-employment (statistical profiling). In the future, a classification into three groups with high, medium and low reintegration prospects by means of a computer algorithm should support the control of the use of resources and contribute to a more efficient use of AMS resources. The aim of this project is to provide empirical evidence of effects in order to better assess the suitability of the planned customer segmentation as a basis for funding allocations and to support an evidence-based, effects-oriented and as cost-effective as possible labour market policy by analysing effect heterogeneity between the three segments on the one hand and independently of this division into three groups on the other. Three types of measures will be examined with regard to their effects on the labour market success of the recipients in the three customer segments: 1. company integration subsidies, 2. employment projects in the secondary labour market (socio-economic enterprises and non-profit employment projects), and 3. qualification. These are the "more costly" measures which are to be used less frequently in the future for people with low labour market opportunities.
Effects of Demographic Aging on Older Workers and the Workforce Structure of Companies (Auswirkungen der demografischen Alterung auf ältere Arbeitskräfte und die Belegschaftsstruktur von Betrieben)
Aktuelle Forschungsprojekte (in Arbeit)
Studie von: Österreichisches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung
Auftraggeber: Kammer für Arbeiter und Angestellte für Wien – Wirtschaftskammer Österreich – Österreichischer Gewerkschaftsbund – Landwirtschaftskammer Österreich
This project examines the expected effects of population aging on the Austrian labour market from the perspective of labour supply and age structures in companies. At the level of the labour force, the analysis focuses on employment opportunities, qualifications and health, while at the level of companies, the analysis focuses on the age structure of the workforce and its observable development in the course of demographic aging. These different perspectives make it possible on the one hand to show different consequences of population aging and on the other hand to provide a quantification of possible future development trends, which can form a framework for planning political action. This research project has a modular structure and comprises in module 1 a forecast of the change in the labour supply until 2040, subdivided into employment, unemployment and inactive states. In particular, developments with regard to health restrictions as well as the age and education structure of the labour force are examined and assessed with regard to their shaping by means of scenario techniques. Module 2 describes the age structure of the workforce at the company level and thus provides insight into the current situation and allows conclusions to be drawn about the challenges companies will face in the future with regard to the aging of the workforce.

Evaluation of the Effectiveness and Efficiency of Training Measures of the Labour Market Service (Evaluierung der Effektivität und Effizienz von Bildungsmaßnahmen des Arbeitsmarktservice)
Aktuelle Forschungsprojekte (in Arbeit)
Studie von: Österreichisches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung
Auftraggeber: Bundesministerium für Arbeit, Soziales, Gesundheit und Konsumentenschutz
The project evaluates the efficiency and effectiveness of training measures implemented by the Austrian Public Employment Service. Firstly, a differentiated stocktaking of the existing use of measures is carried out with the aim of systematically improving the information situation on the implemented measures. With a differentiation according to qualitative aspects such as content, type of qualification, intensity and target group orientation, a research gap that has existed in Austria so far is closed. Secondly, an analysis of the causal effects (net effects) of the training measures on the employment integration of the supported unemployed is carried out, with a differentiated distinction according to type of measure, target group, time and region. Thirdly, conclusions are derived from the analyses for a further development of the existing subsidy monitoring and the use of measures.
