Buildings are independent structures containing one or more dwellings or other spaces, covered by a roof and enclosed within external walls or dividing walls which extend from the foundations to the roof, and are designed for residential or other purposes. The building stock is based on the Housing census. Every 10 years, the Housing census takes place at the same time as the Population census and the Census of enterprises and their local units of employment in Austria. Since 2011, the census has been carried out as a Register-based census. The information is taken directly from already existing administrative registers. The building and dwelling register is the basic register for the Housing census.

The main focus is the building situation with characteristics such as the type of the building, the ownership of buildings, net floor area and the type of heating.
