Prices and Wages in Salzburg and Vienna, c. 1450–1850. An Introduction to the Data


Prices and wages are key indicators of social and economic processes. Recent research exists for some countries, but little data has been added on present-day Austria since the figures produced in the 1930s by Alfred Francis Pribram and his contributors within the International Scientific Committee on Price History. Our datasets offer a long-term price and wage series for the cities of Salzburg and Vienna (c. 1450–1850), together with regional and time-specific consumer baskets.
