The statistics on care services are based on the requirements of the Long-Term Care Fund Act (Pflegefondsgesetz) and the Regulation on Long-Term Care Service Statistics (Pflegedienstleistungsstatistik-Verordnung). Data is collected on the following seven areas of long-term care in the federal provinces and municipalities: mobile care services, support with daily living and respite services lasting serveral hours, semi-inpatient day care, inpatient care services, short-term care in inpatient facilities, alternative forms of housing, and case and care management. Care service statistics do not cover 24-hour care, social services for people with a disability or refugee assistance.

Data on the previous year is collected until 30 September. The statistical results are published online by the end of December and are also included in the publication Österreichischer Pflegevorsorgebericht (in German only).
