Contents of the Database

WIFO has established a comprehensive economic statistical information system for its own work. The database contains extensive statistics on the Austrian economy. This central inventory is divided into the following topics:
  • National Accounts
  • WIFO economic forecast
  • WIFO economic climate indices, WIFO business survey
  • Construction industry
  • Finance
  • Trade
  • Innovation
  • Agriculture and forestry
  • Manufacturing
  • State and public sector
  • Tourism
  • Energy
  • Transport
  • Labour market
  • Population
  • Income
  • Social area
  • Prices and price indices
  • Merchandise trade
  • Balance of payments
  • business survey in industries
  • Austria compared with other countries
 The sets of data contained in WDS have been created partly by WIFO or have been obtained from data suppliers (for example, Statistics Austria, Oesterreichische Nationalbank, the Federation of Austrian Social Insurance Institutions). The data received in different formats from suppliers are extracted by WDS and then processed into homogeneous data sets. New data is added to the database immediately upon its availability. Special attention is given to the maintenance of long time series.
In addition to national data providers, the database also contains data sets of international organisations:
  • IMF – Balance of Payments Statistics (BOPS)
  • IMF – International Financial Statistics (IFS)
  • European Commission – Annual Macro-Economic Database (AMECO)
  • OECD – National Accounts (NAQ)
  • OECD – Economic Outlook (ECO)
  • OECD – Main Economic Indicators (MEI)
  • wiiw – The Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies
  • IMF – Directions of Trade (DOTS)
These national and international data sets can be accessed for a nominal fee using the WDS client newly developed by WSR. For further information, please contact the team "data and information management" under wds@wifo.ac.at.
