Health Statistics 2019
Health is of enormous significance not only for the individual quality of life but – on a much larger scale – also represents an important societal value. Data on population health are of interest to all actors in public health. The article presents an overview of key health statistics in Austria, covering vital statistics, cause-of-death statistics, hospital discharge statistics and cancer statistics as well as data on conscripts, notifiable diseases, health resources and data from social insurance.
Poultry Production in 2020
In 2020 the total weight of chickens slaughtered in slaughterhouses under obligation to report (with a minimum of 5 000 slaughtered poultry per year) amounted to 125 000 tonnes, which corresponds to 98.0 million slaughtered chicken. In comparison to 2019 this means an increase of 8.2%. In brooder houses (with a minimum capacity of 1 000 eggs) the number of hatched chicken eggs rose in comparison to the previous year by 5.7% to 132.5 million pieces, the number of hatched out chicks rose by 3.5% to 103.8 million chicks.

CPI of the year 2020
The average annual inflation rate in 2020 of the Consumer Price Index (CPI, base year 2015) was 1.4%. This result was lower than 2019 with 1.5%, 2018 with 2.0% and 2017 with 2.1%, but higher than 2016 with 0.9%. In 2020 the inflation rate oscillated between 0.7% in May and 2.2% in February. Throughout the year, the inflation rate was mainly influenced by the upward price trend for housing (rents – the biggest price driver), increasing prices for restaurants and hotels, as well as higher prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages. The average annual inflation rate in 2020 in terms of the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP, base year 2015) was also 1.4% and so it was below 2019 (1.5%). This index was most influenced by restaurants and hotels and by the group “Housing”. Increasing prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages influenced the HICP as well as the CPI.

The measures to contain COVID
An integrated NAMEA (National Accounting Matrix including Environmental Accounts) enables the comparison of environmental data and economic key figures for industry and private households. Its purpose is the description of the society’s impacts on the environment. Economic key figures considered are production value, gross value added as well as employees and self-employed persons. Environmental figures comprise material input, energy consumption, air emissions as well as hazardous and non-hazardous wastes, environmental expenditure for air pollution prevention and climate protection as well as waste management and the revenue of environmental taxes. The material input increased between 1995 and 2018 by 14,0% and energy consumption (dominated by non-renewable energy carriers) by 17.2% while gross value added rose by 54.4%. The expenses for protection of ambient air and climate rose by 46.2%, those for waste management by 204.2% and environmental taxes increased by 93.3% overall. Eight out of ten air emissions could be reduced.
