Description

The data on first names of newborns are based on reports of Austria's registry offices on live births, which have been transmitted from the Central Civil Status Register as part of the notification of birth since 1 November 2014. From 1984 to 2009, the respective first names of babies with Austrian citizenship were collected. From 2010 onwards, the respective first names of all babies are included, irrespective of their nationality. From 2015 onwards, babies born abroad to mothers with their main residence in Austria are also recorded. For the hit list of first names, the first first names are used in their original spelling without special characters. In order to be able to merge homonymous first names with different special characters, they are normalised (transcoded). For the statistics of the first names, the most frequent spelling of the etymologically summarised first names is used for the entire period from 1984.
