Austrian Institute of Economic Research (WIFO)

This organization was founded by Hayek and Mises in 1927. "Its goal is to investigate the conditions and trends of economic performance and development in Austria and abroad by means of advanced methods, and to disseminate the results of these investigations so as to promote the general comprehension of the functioning of the national and international economy." It has a staff of about 40 economists, and research covers virtually all areas of economics. WIFO also organizes conferences and workshops.

WIFO also has the most extensive collection of economic data on the Austrian economy, some of which comes from international organizations, and some of which is collected by WIFO. But, the data is only available internally.
