Statistics EAS

Methodological note

The Structural Business Statistics in the Service Sector (called the Annual Services Survey prior to the reference year 2014), is the main source of structural information for all market services. It is a sample survey performed annually by the National Statistical Institute (INE) in collaboration with the Statistical Institute of Catalonia (Idescat) in the Catalan territory. Its fundamental objective is the study of the economic characteristics of companies in the sector, such as their primary activities and employment, as well as accounting data such as expenses or income.

The statistical unit used in the research is companies whose main economic activity is to provide one of the services described in following. A company is considered to be the smallest combination of legal entities that make up an organizational unit that produces goods or services and has a certain degree of autonomy in regard to decision-making. A company may carry out its activities in one or several local units (establishments). The data published for Catalonia regarding this statistic refers to the activities developed by the company units in Catalonia, according to the Catalan Classification of Economic Activities 2009 (CCAE-2009). Until 2007, the classification used was CCAE-93.

From 2009 to 2011, the "Artistic, leisure and entertainment activities" and "Other services" groups were partially studied using a rota system, meaning some of its branches were studied each year. From the year 2012 onwards, all of this group of branches will be studied again. The relationship of branches studied each year is as follows:

Artistic, recreational and entertainment activities
20082009201020112012

Library, archival and museum activities (div. 91)YesYesYesYes

Other services
20082009201020112012
Computer repair, personal belongings and domestic goods (div. 95)YesYesYesYesYes
Other activities in personal services (div. 96)YesYes

In 2014, companies not previously included in the Survey framework were incorporated into the "Wholesale trade and intermediaries, except motor vehicles" branch (group 467 of the CCAE-2009).

Several methodological improvements were applied to the Structural Business Statistics in 2016 as part of the Project for the integration of the structural economic surveys.
