During the counseling and placement process, the appropriate type of support is determined on an individual basis by working closely with existing services and programs offered by the Austrian Public Employment Service (Arbeitmarktservice – AMS) and women’s organisations. The participating women are given a safe environment and receive intensive councelling to identify and reduce their barriers to employment. After being successfully placed in employment, the women receive follow-up support.

Data may be inaccurate, incomplete, inconsistent, and/or not current for various reasons: INDIGO is a collaborative and iterative initiative that mostly relies on projects all over the world volunteering to share their data. We have a system for processing information and try to attribute data to named sources, but we do not audit, cross-check, or verify all information provided to us. It takes time and resources to share data, which may not have been included in a project’s budget. Many of the projects are ongoing and timely updates may not be available. Different people may have different interpretations of data items and definitions. Even when data are high quality, interpretation or generalisation to different contexts may not be possible and/or requires additional information and/or expertise.
