The bavarian state office for statistics had recently taken a little break with its data collection statistik kommunal. Now, however, there is again an updated collection of information on population structure, economy, construction, municipal finances, animal husbandry and other topics. The fact that the spa town is still statistically a city of the old is not necessarily sensational news. But even a glance at the labor market yields remarkable insights. Because he is female in the spa town.
According to the statisticians, the general development on the labor market in the past few years was as positive in the large county seat as in the county or in the region as a whole. According to the data, the number of employees subject to social security contributions has risen steadily since 2011. 10203 employees at the place of work registered by the regional statistics office for 2011. So there were so many occupied positions in the city at that time.
After that, the value increased fairly steadily year after year. 2016, the year for which the youngest figures are available, was then 10 908. The highest share, almost 60 percent, is accounted for by public and private service providers. If you add business service providers, the percentage is even higher. The manufacturing industry, on the other hand, does not even account for a quarter of the total number of employees in the spa town. For the county, however, the focus has already shifted a bit. In the bader district, the share of the manufacturing industry as a whole is 30 percent. In the city of schweinfurt, this sector of the economy traditionally accounts for around 50 percent of the total.
The trade, transport and hospitality sectors are also more pronounced in the large district town of bad kissingen than in other towns of this size. Their importance on the job market has declined slightly, but they still offer about a quarter of the jobs in the city.
Jobs for the region
6910 of the 10,908 jobs subject to social security contributions in the spa town recorded in 2016 were held by women. The male employees at the place of work only had 3998 jobs. By way of comparison: in the entire district of bad kissingen, the proportions of male and female employees are roughly equal. In schweinfurt, which is still industrially dominated, the proportion of vehicles is 60 percent.
The statistics also clearly show that the city of bad kissingen also offers jobs for people from the surrounding area. The number of employees at the place of residence is given as 7503 for 2016. If all employees subject to social security contributions who live in the city were to work here as well, there would still be 3400 jobs left for foreigners. In contrast, the baderland district offers fewer jobs overall (33,337 in 2016) than it has employees subject to social insurance contributions (40,124). Statistics from the local authorities also provide deeper insights than the monthly figures from the schweinfurt employment agency with regard to unemployment in the city of bad kissingen. 600 unemployed in the city for 2016 are therefore to be booked. In 2010, according to the statisticians, there were still 715 people.
