Data protection

Confidentiality of statistics

The strict confidentiality provisions of the Austrian Federal Statistics Act 2000 regulate the handling of confidential data relating to individuals and organisations.

Security of data

Official statistics rely on the trust of citizens, in particular those who contribute to the compilation of a statistical product as respondents. For Statistics Austria, confidentiality of statistical data is therefore more than a legal duty: Ensuring statistical confidentiality through technical and organisational measures is in Statistics Austria’s own best interests.

Trust of respondents

Persons providing information to Statistics Austria can be assured that their confidential data are used exclusively for statistical purposes. Data are treated confidentially and must not be passed on to third parties, be they official, private or of another nature.
