Statistics on theatres and music cover, on the one hand, artistic activities in established theatres and concert halls (due to the lack of a relevant register, the statistics are not exhaustive). The data is based on annual voluntary surveys conducted by Statistics Austria among stage companies and on the annual reports of the Austrian federal theatres. Free groups, orchestras, multi-purpose halls, etc. are generally not covered by primary statistics.

Furthermore, the Austrian collective management organisation of Authors, Composers and Music Publishers (AKM) provides annual tabulations of live music events at which copyrighted music was played, as well as royalty income from the administration of rights to musical works, based on administrative data.
