Information concerning further indicators for the CEE region, the Eurozone, the individual CEE countries covered by the analysis, and Austria can be found in the table (see download "Detailed Results for the CEE-Indicator September 2016"). The answers of all survey participants are taken into account for the calculation of the indicators for the CEE region, the Eurozone and Turkey.
