Description

The annual construction completion statistics report on the construction of apartments and new buildings according to equipment features, those responsible for construction and types of construction. The data is derived from the Address, Building and Dwelling register whose law also orders and regulates these statistics.

The completeness and data quality was affected by many failures in the past. In the meantime there have been improvements. Any failures that still occur are compensated for by estimating late registrations and other allocations. Therefore, regular revisions are initiated.

No results are available for Vienna for extensions, construction or conversion work on existing buildings.

In addition to completions, results on housing disposals are also presented, which subsequently allow the housing stock to be updated.
