Educational demographics of an Austrian diocese in Styria were examined between the years of 1848 and 1852, to show both the importance of the data and the possibility for further research. The data was examined in conjunction with the imperial education law that directed the Austrian educational system in the nineteenth century. Both the micro and macro elements of the paper were influenced by the strong Austrian Catholic tradition and were integrated heavily into the paper to help put the data in perspective. The limited amount of research on the topic restricted specific conclusions for the research, however there are some general conclusions that the paper made. The presented data was shown to be influential in its own right through its listing of secular school attendance, Sunday school attendance, and teacher's salaries. It also was influential as an introduction into further research in microeconomics, culture, and notions of identity.
