Resource description

Research into the origins of economic growth in the late nineteenth century Habsburg Empire has so far suffered from a lack of evidence on the evolution of the capital stock. As a first step towards a more comprehensive documentation of the role played by factor inputs in the Habsburg growth experience, this paper presents annual estimates of the gross domestic fixed capital stock in imperial Austria, distinguishing between buildings (residential, agricultural, commercial, public), infrastructure (railway tracks, roads), vehicles (railway rolling stock, ships) and machinery.
