Statistics Austria provides yearly data about the graduations from Austrian higher education institutions (public and private universities, theological schools, universities of applied sciences and university colleges of teacher education) as well as data about study-related stays abroad. The legal basis is provided by the Federal Act on Documentation in Education (Bildungsdokumentationsgesetz 2020) and the Regulation on the Statistics of Universities and Higher Education Institutions and on Education Documentation (UHSBV).

The main sources of data are the registers of the higher education institutions and data from the primary statistical survey at the end of studies (UHStat2). The key figure is the number of graduations from Austrian higher education institutions.
