A new study of an Austrian encashment service revealed the fact that Austrias most honest debtors are living in Austrias most eastern province Burgenland. People from Burgenland pay their debts in almost all cases on time.
Old debtors are more honest than young debtors, was another interesting fact in that study. Old woman from Burgenland (above 61 years) are the most honest debtors of all. Burgenland is an exception. Usually the Eastern part of Austria is not so motivated to pay debts. People from Vienna and Lower Austria are one of Austrias worst debtors. Vorarlberg, Tirol and Salzburg are behind Burgenland on the top ranking of Austrias most honest debtors.
