[19.09.2014] Code 42151 Auftragseingangsindex im Verarbeitenden Gewerbe
From August 2014 onwards, the interim index of new orders in manufacturing is no longer published. Please refer to the available final results.
[18.06.2014] Code 31211 Zensus 2011
Final results on the census of buildings and housing were released today. The tables hereto can be retrieved under the menu item “New data”. The now completed procedure of household generation in the 2011 census led to adjustments of the previously published preliminary buildings and housing stock (on 31st May 2013). In the household generating procedure persons or households were assigned to individual apartments, whereby residential households could be formed. If the number of residential households did not match the number of buildings and housing collected through the census, the buildings and housing stock has been adjusted in special cases.
[13.06.2014] Code 82000 VGR der Länder (Berechnungstand: 08.2005/02.2006)
Due to revisions, the previously published results on gross domestic product and gross value added (GDP / GVA) of the Regional accounts of the Laender (Tables 82000-82000-01i to 03i) are based on an outdated definition and classification. They are no longer comparable with current results and therefore no longer available.
The revised results available for survey years up to 2013 may be retrieved from the websites of the working group of the Regional accounts of the Laender under
[13.06.2014] Code 82711 VGR der Länder - Kreisberechnungen
Due to revisions, the previously published results on gross fixed capital formation of the Regional accounts of the Laender (Tables 82711-02i* to 82711-05i*) are no longer comparable with current results and therefore no longer available.
The revised results are no longer calculated for the regional level (counties and county-free cities).
