The WIFO radar of competitiveness measures the performance of Austria using 24 selected indicators related to economic, social
and ecological goals: on average across 24 indicators, Austria is just behind the top third of European countries and has
recently fallen further behind. This was partly due to a drop in the rankings for multifactor productivity and the indicators
for employment and income distribution. Austria continues to achieve very high scores in regional cohesion. In other areas,
such as energy dependency and environmental patents, it has improved relative to the other countries.
