Foreign Affiliates Statistics (FATS)

The Austrian FATS statistics, for reasons of reducing the respondents’ burden, mainly relies on the availability of other statistics. These are the annual Structural Business Statistics (SBS), the bi-annual data collection on research and development (R&D), and the annual Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) statistics. These data are combined by using crucial information from the statistical Business Register.

Results for the year 2019 are not yet available. However, for comparability reasons and because of the moderate response burden for Foreign Affiliates Statistics the value from 2018 was transferred to 2019 in the overall tables.
