The European System of Statistical Indicators, based on a set of indicators drawn up by Eurostat, presents a series of indicators about Catalonia, situated within the context of Europe, that enables comparisons to be drawn with Spain, the Eurozone and the European Union.
Idescat is the body that manages and updates all the figures that are part of the European Union system of indicators. The figures for Catalonia are produced by the different bodies that are part of the Catalan statistical system, while the figures for Europe and Spain are gotten from Eurostat. All of these indicators are annual and are updated continuously. Their management via a database guarantees that the statistical figures are up-to-date, accessible and timely.
