Conventional dwellings are structurally separate premises which are designed to match the purpose for individual living at a fixed location, with direct access from the street or from a public staircase. The dwelling 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 dwelling situation with characteristics such as main residence, useful floor space, number of rooms, equipment of the dwelling as well as ownership/tenure status.
