    The Statistical Institute of Catalonia (Idescat) has constructed its website in order to facilitate universal access to everyone who visits it, regardless of their physical, sensory, and intellectual abilities and the technical features of the equipment used (type of device, software, connection speed, environmental conditions, etc.).

    Idescat strives to adapt its website to the recommendations of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and remove the barriers that hinder access to information and communication, in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1, achieving an AA compliance level.

    Idescat wishes to provide an eminently practical and useful tool to guarantee and promote equality in the provision and management of online information. To this effect, provided that it has the sufficient means to do so, it will progressively incorporate the advances and new systems facilitating accessibility in communication into the information and communication technology it uses, in accordance with the EN 301 549:2018 standard version 2.1.2 on accessibility requirements for ICT products and services (websites, software, native applications, documents, hardware, etc.).
