Notes
  • In 2008, Austria's economy grew by 1.8 percent in real terms. The year started out with a solid growth rate but ended with the country in recession. Economic stagnation in the third quarter was followed by a decline over the previous quarter of the seasonally and working day-adjusted GDP. Flagging international demand impacted on export-oriented manufacturing which recorded a perceptible check, especially in the second half of the year. In the fourth quarter, value added in the manufacturing sector fell by 1.4 percent against the previous quarter, a contraction of a scope similar to that in the autumn of 2001. The services sector constituted a stable pillar in 2008, and the tourism industry recorded a successful year. Fuelled by a steep rise in raw material prices, especially for crude oil and food products, inflation approached the 4 percent mark in summer. Once crude oil prices reversed their upward trend, inflation in turn began to recede in October. As a lagging indicator, until the end of 2008, the labour market responded only slowly to the cyclical downswing, and employment once again increased substantially in 2008.
