The Federal Statistical Office has revised the definition of SM regions and labour market areas by means of a statistical algorithm that has been clearly documented and developed by Eurostat in cooperation with various European countries. This method enabled municipalities to be grouped together based on the commuter flow matrix between the place of residence and place of work of employed persons.
Henceforth, MS regions will be known as “labour market areas” and the current “labour market areas” as “large labour market areas”.
