Cover of the Integration and Diversity Monitor

The results are published in the Integration and Diversity Monitor. They provide an insight into the eight main topics of integration and diversity and reflect the integration status of the Viennese population as well as the diversity status of more than 40 municipal departments and their affiliated organisations. The 3rd and 4th Monitors also included results showing the ethnic background, gender and qualification grades of City Administration staff.

The 4th Monitor also addresses the topics of refugees and asylum.

Development

Since 2007, the Viennese population has increased by about 12 percent. 35 percent of Viennese were born abroad. 29 percent are foreign citizens (as at January 2017). These figures urge political decision-makers and the administration to enhance and adjust their services and offers and make them available to a growing and increasingly diverse population.

Since 2007, the City of Vienna has been monitoring developments with regard to integration policies in the areas of political participation, education, employment, social protection, housing and good neighbourly relations. In addition, the measures taken by politics and administration to react to the diverse needs of the population have been analysed. After periods of two to three years, the results have been combined and published in a public report (Monitor).

Awards

In 2010, Vienna's Integration and Diversity Monitoring received an Austrian Administration Award in the category "Management of Diversity, Integration and Gender Potential for the Administration of the Future".
