Data Location


The Ministry of Finance releases monthly, regularly updated datasets on the implemented budget (XLS). These datasets contain the monthly aggregate spending of Ministries and other major State bodies of the federal level (EUR 100k). However, these break-downs do not show what these entities spend the money on, no itemized spending data is available. Thus, the level of detail required by this survey is not met.

Also Statistik Austria (national statistical office) publishes income and expenses on a quarterly basis machine-readable in xls and html and pdf format, see:

Reviewer comments

Submission has been modified. Even if the statistics office provides expenditure data, it is not at a transactional level and therefore does not count. However this is a good addition in the comment section.
