Statistics Austria provides data on the teaching staff at educational institutions in Austria, covering public and private schools as well as higher education (public and private universities, universities of applied sciences, university colleges of teacher education), by headcount and by full time equivalents.

The legal basis is the Federal Act on Documentation in Education (Bildungsdokumentationsgesetz 2020 – BilDokG 2020). Statistical analyses of teaching staff at schools can be broken down by the following characteristics: headcount or full-time equivalents, sex, age, school type, federal province or political district. Statistical analyses of teaching staff at higher education institutions can be broken down by the following characteristics: headcount or full-time equivalents, professors, assistants and other academic and artistic staff, type of institution, higher education institution, federal province and sex. The sources are statistics about schools and universities, data from the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research and the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Regions and Tourism, and data collection in private schools.
