The Economy in the Austrian Federal Provinces
Analysis and forecast of business cycles are core competencies of WIFO. The series "The Economy in the Austrian Federal Provinces" provides a quarterly overview of the current economic development of the Austrian federal provinces. Based on the results of WIFO forecast and reporting, this publication uses the findings of the WIFO-Konjunkturtest (business cycle survey), current labour market and tourism data as well as figures from the short-term statistics. Twice a year, the results of the WIFO Flash Estimate on the development of real gross value added in the federal provinces are included. The reporting periods are the first half of the previous year (published in February) and the past year (published in June). The last issue of the year contains a forecast of employment and unemployment by province for the next years.
