According to the Austrian broadcasting company Österreichische Rundfunk (ORF), almost 20% of the population of Austria in 2020 was born abroad.
That means 1.765 million (19.8%) of Austria’s current almost nine million residents/citizens were born overseas.
As might be expected, that number is the highest in Vienna, the capital city, where 36.7% of people currently living here were not born in Austria.
The lowest number was 11.6 percent in Burgenland, the easternmost state of Austria’s nine states (Länder in German) and a state with the country’s lowest population.
The latest figures come from a report by the Austrian Integration Fund (ÖIF), which states there has been an increase of foreign-born residents in Austria since 2015 of around 18.9%.
