Idescat and the Ministry of Culture of the Generalitat de Catalunya are launching a further Survey on Language Uses of the Population. The Survey fieldwork begins in the first week of March and will last until September. The Survey compiles information on the identification and language uses of the population of Catalonia in the different areas of personal relationships, with particular interest in the status of the use of Catalan. The form of data collection is multi-channel, through three response channels: internet, telephone and face-to-face.
The Survey on Language Uses of the Population 2018 is an official statistical activity forming part of the corresponding Annual Program for Statistical Action, deployed by the Law on the Statistical Plan for Catalonia 2017–2020.
The organizations responsible are the Ministry of Culture, through the General Directorate for Language Policy and Idescat.
