Brochures

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 2018" 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. 30 percent of national spending is tied to the city vs. a 21 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
