The International Social Survey Programme (ISSP) represents a series of cross-national collaborations between organizations conducting similar social science research. ISSP researchers focus on developing survey questions that are relevant and comprehensible in all countries and languages, with survey results that are comparable across nations. The data were collected through in-person, computer-aided interviews. The sample size for Austria was 1,020 interviews with persons aged 18 years and older.

This survey covers topics including: leisure time activities and satisfaction; sports activities and sociological aspects of sports; social and political participation; and social determinants and outcomes of leisure.
