Government Budget 45% open


What data is expected?

National government budget at a high level, that is the planned government expenditure for the upcoming year, and not the actual expenditure. Open budget data allows for well-informed publics: showing where money is spent on, how public funds develop over time, and why certain activities are funded. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

  • Budget per government department
  • Budget per sub-department
  • Descriptions for budget sections

How open is the data?

No budget data is released on by the Federal Ministry of Finance on the Austrian open government data portal, ( Some regional governments and cities do release budget data as open data (

Accept: I agree with the assesment of the reviewer that the budget data - in machine readable format - is not sufficiently made available. Only overview tables and the budget law in PDF, and that does not suffice as an Open Data Set.
