Comments

Statistics Austria has launched an open data sub-section of its website, http://data.statistik.gv.at/. However, it only offers about a dozen datasets there under open data standards. The datasets released there include data on the total population of Austria, but not on its GDP.

Numerous datasets are released by Statistik Austria on its main website in PDF and some also in HTML and other formats. Data can also be access through access to a web-based free but captcha protected database, that allows for download of selected data in various formats, including CSV and XLS. Statistik Austria retains a strict copyright on the data (except the few datasets released on its open data sub-website) and charges for many data sets, including municipal budget data.
