The Economic and Social Computing Center is the central Austrian data host for national and international economic data.
WSR is the IT service provider for the Austrian Institute of Economic Research (WIFO). It operates a powerful economic database (WIFO Datensystem – WDS), which was developed jointly with WIFO and comprises economically relevant statistics for Austria as well as a large number of international economic databases.
