This study illustrates the situation of Viennese inbound and outbound commuters including the group of the Viennese non-commuters.
As a basis of this study, the employment market and employment career databases of L&R Social Research were used in combination with data regarding place of residence and education.
The 2009 yearly average shows just under 317,500 inbound commuters (or, more correctly, inbound commuter employments). This number takes into consideration all forms of employment such as standard employments (fully insured, full-time or part-time), marginal part-time employments, independent contractors, so-called 'new' self-employed and provision of temporary workers.
These 317,500 inbound commuters compare with an average of just more than 192,000 outbound commuters during the same period of time. At just under 135,500 the balance of commuters (inbound commuters minus outbound commuters) is decidedly positive. Accordingly, the province of Vienna can be characterised as a so-called "inbound commuter province".
The relatively largest group of employees is made up, as was to be expected, by so-called non-commuters, that is, people whose place of residence and workplace are both in Vienna. On a yearly average, the number of non-commuters is just under 540,000.
