Austria's unit labour cost position improved thanks to the recovering economy and the related increase in productivity. Per-capita labour costs increased only slightly in manufacturing, while labour productivity per employee saw a greater rise. In general, unit labour costs in Austrian manufacturing developed slightly less favourably than among the EU trading partners and Germany. A look at the developments during the past five to ten years provides deeper insights due to business cycle-related temporary effects.
