Redistribution to the Public Sector in Austria

The structure builds on previous work undertaken by WIFO (1986, 1996, 2009) on the topic of redistribution. Using the data from the consumer survey 2009/10 and the EU-SILC data 2011/12 we intend to focus on the distributive efficiency of public revenues and expenditures while giving high priority to the comparability with the earlier studies. Moreover, the project will include conceptual and methodological developments.
