Description

Migration

A person’s change of residence is defined as a migration flow. International migration includes all changes of residence between foreign countries and is also referred to as external migration. All changes of residence within the borders of a country are considered internal migrations. Internal migrations can be further distinguished by changes of residence within a given entity (e.g. countries, federal territories, counties, municipalities) without crossing administrative boundaries.

Since 2002 migration statistics are based on administrative registrations and de-registrations of main residencies in the Central Register of Residence (CRR). This includes changes of residence from within a municipality down to the level of localities and census tracts. Not covered by migration statistics, however, are all changes of residence within the same building. Only persons who have registered a main residence in Austria for at least 90 consecutive days are included.
