Over Half of Slovenians Work Outside Their Municipality


Almost 112,000 workers commuted to the municipality of Ljubljana.

SURS says that the number of daily inter-municipality migrants increases slightly every year. Last year it rose by almost 8,700 over the year before.

Consequently, the number of people working in their residency municipality is decreasing, dropping to slightly over 49% at the end of last year.

Ljubljana is the municipality boasting the largest share of residents working in their own municipality.

Last year 84% of its residents worked in the municipality of Ljubljana, while only 16% had to commute to other municipalities for work.

Meanwhile, 17 of the country's 212 municipalities were ranked "very labour intensive" last year.

This means that the number of jobs in the municipality exceeds the number of residency workers by at least 16%.

Such municipalities were Trzin, Šempeter-Vrtojba, Nazarje, Ljubljana, Murska Sobota, Kidričevo, Zreče, Gornja Radgona, Celje, Novo mesto, Maribor, Lenart, Ptuj, Velenje, Odranci, Nova Gorica and Idrija.

SURS also says there were some 2,500 foreign daily migrants on the Slovenian labour market last year, a rise of over 200 from 2013.

The majority, or some 1,400, commuted from Croatia and over 600 from Italy.
