Annual personal income

Around 4.6 million employees (excluding apprentices) earned €29 458 in 2019. The median gross annual income for women was €22 808, men earned €35 841 on average. The median net annual income 2019 was €22 104 (women: €18 233, men: €25 938).

An interpretation of the differences in income between men and women needs to take structural differences into account. In particular, these include disproportionately high rates of part-time employment and employment for only part of the year as well as different qualification and age structures.

Male civil servants (gross annual median income 2019: €59 772) head the list of the groups of employed persons, followed by female civil servants (€58 233) and male white collar workers (€47 373). Female white collar workers (€25 448) and female blue collar workers (€12 883) bring up the rear.

In 2019, around 2.1 million retired persons were resident in Austria. They received a median gross annual income of €21 744 (women: €17 132, men: €27 934). This equated to a median net income of €19 226 (women: €15 839, men: €23 051).
