How many jobs do businesses create in Austria? What ist their gross operating surplus? In which sectors are investments particularly high?
These questions are answered with the aid of structural business statistics (SBS). These statistics capture the structure, performance, employment and investments of Austrian enterprises. Due to harmonized European requirements structural business data are internationally comparable and they provide essential information to calculate economic indicators, e.g. the gross domestic product (GDP).
IMPORTANT! Last reference year 2021 an amended legal basis entered into force that led to extensive changes for the structural business statistics survey and the enterprises, respectively. The national concept was revised, aligned and simplified with the goal to decrease the burden on respondents. Please find the access to the reporting tools and comprehensive information about the changes as well as detailed instructions to the new reporting tool “Balance of accounts” below.
