Tools, Models, Data
Researchers at the IHS develop and host a broad palette of tools and models built on methodologies established in economic and social science which are the basis for economic forecasts, e.g. the quarterly economic forecast for Austria, a renowned component of media reporting on domestic economic policy. In addition, the IHS has a broad range of social and economic datasets which are processed and used in mutliple research projects. Among others, the IHS, commissioned by Federal Ministries, coordinates the national branch of the European Social Survey (ESS), an ongoing survey of attitudes, beliefs and behaviour patterns across thirty European countries.
