Ageing workers in the Austrian labour market - Linked Employer-employee Data Analysis

Facing an ageing and shrinking workforce it is key to understand the productivity of older workers and to identify firm characteristics that allow older workers productivity not to decline, in particular so in times of accelerated digitalization and automation. Within LEDA we analyze the relationship between the age structure of the workforce and labor productivity/wages at the firm level in Austria drawing on a panel data set from 2009 to 2021 that will be built up within the Austrian Micro Data Center (AMDC).
