As of July 18, 2015 there were at least 4,961 Airbnb listings in Vienna, Austria.
Two thirds of the listings (3,339 out of 4,961) are "Entire homes or apartments" and a quarter (1,280 listings) are "Entire homes and apartments" that are "rented recently" and "frequently rented" for more than 60 days, or two months out of the year.
Entire apartments that are frequently rented are more than likely permanently dedicated to short-term rentals, and unavailable for residential long term leases - they are essentially residential housing transformed without any community consultation into hotel rooms.
Almost two thirds of all listings in Vienna are advertised by hosts that have more than one listing - both implying that the hosts do not live in the apartments, but also that they are running a de-facto hotel or hotel managment business.

How is Airbnb really being used in and affecting your neighbourhoods?
Airbnb guests may leave a review after their stay, and these can be used as an indicator of airbnb activity.
The minimum stay, price and number of reviews have been used to estimate the occupancy rate, the number of nights per year and the income per month for each listing.
How does the income from Airbnb compare to a long-term lease?
Do the number of nights booked per year make it impossible for a listing to be used for residential housing?
And what is renting to a tourist full-time rather than a resident doing to our neighbourhoods and cities?
An Airbnb host can setup a calendar for their listing so that it is only available for a few days or weeks a year.
Other listings are available all year round (except for when it is already booked).
Entire homes or apartments highly available year-round for tourists, probably don't have the owner present, could be illegal, and more importantly, are displacing residents.
Some Airbnb hosts have multiple listings.
A host may list separate rooms in the same apartment, or multiple apartments or homes available in their entirity.
Hosts with multiple listings are more likely to be running a business, are unlikely to be living in the property, and in violation of most short term rental laws designed to protect residential housing.
