Child and Youth Welfare 2019
Results of the provinces
Health is of enormous significance not only for the individual quality of life but – on a much larger scale – also represents an important societal value. Data on population health are of interest to all actors in public health. The article presents an overview of key health statistics in Austria, covering vital statistics, cause-of-death statistics, hospital discharge statistics and cancer statistics as well as data on conscripts, notifiable diseases, health resources and data from social insurance.
Foreign Trade 2020 - Preliminary results
Compared to the year 2019, the turnover of the Austrian
ITGS (International Trade in Goods Statistics) of the year 2020 (preliminary
results) indicated a slowdown with regard to imports as well as to exports.
Austrian imports of goods declined by 8.6% to EUR 144.20 billion; Austrian
exports fell by 7.5% to EUR 141.93 billion. Foreign trade with EU member
states showed a decline in both trade flows (intra-EU-imports:
CPI of February 2021
The inflation rate of the Consumer Price Index (CPI,
base year 2020) in February 2021 was 1.2% (January 2021: 0.8%). Prices
for fuels and heating oil no longer declined as heavily as they did
in January, significantly reducing their dampening impact on the inflation
rate in February. Housing, water and energy
2019 Material Input
Industry and construction
This article presents the main results of the material input survey in industry and construction (sections B to F of ÖNACE 2008) for the reference year 2019 based on a commodity list derived from ÖCPA 2015. The sample represented 2 607 establishments of the economically most important enterprises (each with on average 20 and more persons employed and a total economic production value of EUR 10.0 million and more in the reference year). These enterprises covered about 76% of the total economic production value according to the short term statistics survey of the respective reference year. The main purpose of this survey is to provide detailed and comparable information on material input (and on purchase of material intended for production processes within the processing unit, respectively) for the calculation of input-output-tables in accordance with the SNA, of material flows and of energy balances. Furthermore, enterprises can compare the material input of their own economic sector with that of other branches. The total value of material input in 2019 amounted to EUR 81.4 billion, representing 41.7% of the total economic production value of the surveyed establishments. In comparison to the total material input, 23.8% of these materials further processed are basic metals (iron, steel and non-ferrous materials) as well as fabricated metal products except machinery and equipment, followed by chemicals, chemical products and rubber and plastic products (12.0%).
Innovation activities 2016
The Community Innovation Survey (CIS 2018) was carried out over the reference period 2016 to 2018 based on a European regulation which is mandatory for the countries of the European Economic Area (EEA). It has compiled the most important indicators about innovation activities in European enterprises with ten and more employed persons. This article compares data on product and business process innovations and analyses shares of turnover with innovative products, innovation expenditure, innovation cooperation as well as further innovation-related indicators in the different European countries. 50% of all enterprises in the EU were innovation active between 2016 and 2018. 30% introduced a product innovation, and 41% a business process innovation. In Austria, those figures lied well above the EU average.
