Stock of buildings and dwellings

The Register-based Census 2011 (reference day: 31 October) counted 2 191 280 buildings and 4 441 408 dwellings. This signifies an increase of 7.1% in the number of buildings compared with the Census in 2001 when 2.05 million buildings were captured, and related to the number of 3.86 million dwellings in 2001 a rise of 15.0%. Because of the fact that these figures are not compiled solely for the entire country but also for municipalities and even smaller areas, the results of the Census serve as basis for many measures implemented by public authorities. The figures are also used as a basis for economic decisions and for scientific projects.

Slightly less than four fifths of all buildings in Austria are residential buildings with one or two dwellings. One building out of nine is a residential building with three or more dwellings, 9.9% are non-residential buildings. By contrast only 45.3% of all dwellings are located in residential buildings with a maximum of two dwellings. 21.6% are located in residential buildings with three to ten dwellings, 29.9% are in residential buildings with 11 or more dwellings, and only 2.9% of the dwellings are located in buildings that primarily serve commercial, industrial or cultural purposes or the provision of services.

More detailed results are provided on the web pages “Buildings” and “Dwellings”.
