Currently, regional foreign trade data by federal states are available for the years 2010-2020 (final data) as well as for the first half year 2021 (preliminary data).

Starting with reporting year 2010, Statistics Austria compiles on behalf of the Austrian Chamber of Commerce (WKO) and the nine Austrian federal states regionalized foreign trade data by federal states. In order to calculate statistically reliable regional foreign trade data which are in compliance with the principles of the national official statistical institution, individual records are matched and reassigned by resorting to already existing data sources.
