Description

The Public Finance Statistics of regional authorities (federal government, the states, Vienna, municipalities and associations of local authorities) provides important and detailed information about public finances. This Statistics serves as a base for national (intergovernmental fiscal relations and Austrian Stability Pact) and international statistical analyses (Maastricht EDP indicators, government finance statistics, national accounts). The delivery of this information to Statistics Austria is governed by the Gebarungsstatistik regulation, Federal Law Gazette II No. 345/2013.

As of January 2020, a new Budget Reform (VRV 2015) came into force for federal states and municipalities. The federal government switched to a similar system already in 2013 (Austrian federal budget reform). Thus, a comparable set of indicators from all accounts (profit and loss accounts, cash flow statements and balance sheet data) is available for all sectors of government from 2020 onwards.
