Inter- and intraindustrial Job-to-Job Flows. A Linkage Analysis of Regional Vacancy Chains in Austria

  • Christine M. Aumayr


Nine Austrian NUTS 2 inter- and intraindustrial job-to-job worker flows for 33 industries are analysed by means of input-output techniques, with these job-to-job flows being an intermediate input in the production of filled vacancies. A new dataset on individual labour market episodes allows for the tracing of individual careers. A linkage analysis of the Leontief multiplier shows that business services, wholesale&retail and the metal industry are ‘key’ industries in for- and backwarding employment, whereas construction and tourism exert an impact on other regional industries by absorbing workers upon aggregate external shocks. These findings can be incorporated in industrial employment forecasts or utilized in regional labour market impact studies.
