Description

The housing conditions of private households in Austria are characterized by different indicators including the tenure status of the household, the size of the dwelling, the surveyed equipment criteria of dwellings as well as the housing satisfaction. The tenure status of the household also covers the duration of the contract and whether the agreement is fixed-term or not. Indicators for overcrowding or problems with the dwelling (noise, rot, vandalism) give an overview to challenges occurring in housing.

The data sources are based on two surveys. The Microcensus Housing Survey constantly collects data on the housing situation of main residences. EU-SILC provides data of the housing situation of Austrian private households annually.
