The Working-Day Effect in the Austrian Economy
AbstractAs 2004 is a leap year and some holidays are situated at weekends, it possesses three working days more than 2003. An analysis based on a seasonal time series model estimates an increase in production by 0.1 percent for the whole year. The working-day effect is analysed for total GDP as well as by branch and turns out to be substantially lower than comparable estimates for Germany.
