Methodological note

National accounting measures the contributions made to production by labour, by means of the number of jobs in an economy.

The Jobs variable is different from the number of employed people (which is the variable measured by active population surveys) as the latter one only counts the number of people. Thus only if there is no moonlighting the number of jobs and the number of employed people will be the same.

Full time equivalent jobs are defined as the total number of hours worked divided by the mean annual hours worked in full time jobs in the economic territory.

The variable Total includes jobs held by both wage-earners and self-employed. The variable Salaried workers includes only jobs held by wage-earners.

Jobs are broken down in the same way as GDP from the supply standpoint:

  • Agriculture (which includes agriculture, animal, forestry and fishing).
  • Industry
  • Manufacturing industry.
  • Construction.
  • Services (detailed in three groups of branch sections: branches G, H and I of CCAE-2009, related to Trade, transport and hostelry; sections J to M and R to U, Real estate and professionals activities and other; and sections O, P and Q Public administration, education, health and social services).

The detailed results for forty-four sectors of activity are presented in the section of monographic information Annual Economic Accounts for Catalonia (GDP).

The annual estimations of jobs (base 2010) are final for the 2000–2014 period and the estimates of later years are provisional, therefore they are susceptible to be revised. The estimates of 2017 and 2018 are advances taken from short-term indicators.

The series on Spain that are published correspond to the 2019 Benchmark revision implemented by the INE in its magnitudes of the Annual Spanish National Accounts. These new series have been drawn up upon the basis of the updates of the statistical sources and estimation methods, within a harmonized review project with Eurostat and the European Central Bank.

The series on the Annual Economic Accounts for Catalonia will be reviewed in accordance with the current calendar (March 2020).
