The offered range of regional data includes data packages based on regional statistical grid units, various regional breakdowns or as customer-defined polygons. In addition, information is published in the "The municipality in figures" brochure. Geodata of all spatial divisions is made available in the open.data Portal.
Regional statistical grid units are placed over the entire territory of Austria. The grids are independent of administrative boundaries and therefore allow a more objective delineation of areas. Because of their small scale, spatial distributions can be more easily identified. A detailed list of packages and characteristics can be found in the metadata catalogue reg.data.
Statistics Austria provides aggregated data for customer defined polygons. Georeferenced point data is used as basis for these aggregations independently from administrative boundaries.
"The municipality in figures" is a regional information brochure containing tables and graphs for a specific municipality. Included is a comprehensive comparison of the selected municipality with the political district or federal province in which it is located. The structure of each of these characteristics is shown in updated form. The datasheets are available online free of charge: Blick-Online (available in German only).
Regional classifications, such as administrative breakdowns (e.g. municipal boundaries, political districts) as well as functional divisions (e.g. census districts, settlement units) are required to create statistics. This geodata, which can be used for the analysis and presentation of statistical information, is made available via Statistics Austria's open.data portal.
