Vienna in Figures

The concise folder sums up key information on Vienna as a habitat, on its population, the local economy, politics and public administration. With its mix of tables and figures, it is a valuable source of information.

Business Location

The brochure "Business Location 2022" provides policy-makers and businesses with a solid decision­-making basis by offering a thorough overview of Vienna's economy. The Austrian capital is a very attractive location both for investors and for its residents: Vienna is able to score top positions in numerous international rankings. In addition to high productivity and a highly qualified workforce, special mention must be made of the city’s high quality of living.

Research and Development

Vienna is not only Austria’s centre of research and development, but also well placed on a European scale. 31 percent of national spending is tied to the city versus a 22 percent population share. Moreover, the Austrian capital holds 3rd place among all EU regions with regard to the share of R&D personnel. Municipal Department 23 (Economic Affairs, Labour and Statistics) has compiled this and other data on research and development in a clearcut and concise manner.

Population Projection

According to Vienna's current small-scale projection 2023, the total population of Vienna will increase by 310,000 people (+15.6 percent) during the period 2023 to 2053. The number of residents in the city will amount to 2,292,000 in 2053.

Vienna in Europe

In brief, the data compiled here provide an insight into Vienna's mutual contacts to other EU member states, and illustrate the performance of the Austrian federal capital in comparison with other EU capital cities.

Gender-sensitive statistics

This issue of Vienna Statistics Journal "Statistik Journal Wien 2/2014" covers basic methodology and contents with respect to gender data as well as adequate interpretation and analysis.

Data excellence in the Vienna City Administration

The folder supports Vienna City Administration employees producing, analysing and interpreting gender statistics and data on equality. Data excellence provides a sound basis for future decisions on the policy level.
