The Economic Statistics on Social Services Centres and Entities forms part of the Social Services Accounts. The aim of these statistics is to obtain information on the activity and economic dimension of social service centres and complementary services run by non-profit private entities in Catalonia.
It provides data on the activity, capacity, occupied vacancies, employed and volunteer staff, expenditures and income of these centres and entities. As far as the centres are concerned, the information is disaggregated by the type of population being attended, the types of care services they provide, the size of the centre and legal status. As for complementary services run by non-profit organisations, the information is disaggregated by the primary type of population they attend and the number of services they provide. The data is presented for Catalonia as a whole on a five-year basis.
The Registry of Social Service Organisations, Services and Establishments from the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Families constitutes the information groundwork for the directories from which the sample has been taken in order to prepare the survey. Idescat has carried out these statistics in partnership with the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Families.
