Methodological aspects

The Births Statistics provide information on the births, deliveries and late foetal deaths of people residing in Catalonia according to their demographic and social characteristics.

The original source of the data are the statistical bulletins on births involving women living in Catalonia who are registered in civil registers. Until 2011, the data refers to the registrations made in Catalonia of people who reside there. From 2012 onwards, it includes all events involving residents in Catalonia who have been registered in other autonomous communities.

From 2012 onwards, the data is reported annually in two phases: the provisional data, based on events concerning residents registered with civil registries of Catalonia, and the definitive data, with events concerning all residents (including those registered with civil registries in other autonomous communities).Idescat draws up these statistics in collaboration with the INE, based on the delivery records of the Civil Registry.

Current Territorial Distribution

At present, Catalonia is divided into 41 counties, 1 singular territorial entity (Aran) and 8 areas of the Territorial Plan, according to the latest territorial changes, which affect the areas of El Penedès and the Central Counties, Aran and El Moianès.
