Description

Private households spend a substantial part of their income on housing. Information on “housing costs” is given on several financial aspects of housing. On the one hand, the development of rents per quarter is shown, on the other hand, the total housing cost for all primary residences is provided. The total housing costs include operating costs, energy costs, maintenance costs and rental costs as well as the interest portion of the loan repayment for housing. The share of housing costs on household income is also recorded.

The data sources are based on two surveys. The Microcensus Housing Survey constantly collects the housing situation of main residences and publishes the monthly rent and running cost of the tenants’ households every quarter. EU-SILC provides data of the total housing cost, energy costs and housing cost burden of Austrian private households every year.
