Methodological note

Definition of concepts

Worker affiliated to the Social Security system
Person that exercises a labour activity in exchange for payment that is affiliated to the general Social Security scheme and the special scheme for mining and coal workers that are working or in similar situations to being working such as temporary incapacity, suspended by reasons of redundancy, partially unemployed, etc. Not included are workers that are fully unemployed, workers with special agreements, workers for companies covered by restructuring plans and workers receiving aid in the form of early retirement payments or in other situations that do not have an effect on contributions. The same person is accounted for as many times as they have situations in which they contribute, whether they have several labour activities in a single regime or in various.

Methodological aspects

Affiliation to the Social Security System is compulsory for all people in the Social Security's field of application and unique for the lifetime of the worker and for the entire System. That is to say, a person who is working signs up when they begin their working life and registers in one of the System’s schemes; the affiliation is done only once, notwithstanding the various periods when they are working or not working during their working life. Affiliations to the various Social Security schemes correspond to situations which give rise to the obligation to contribute; that is, one person is counted as many times as their situations, either on the same or different schemes.

Affiliations of workers affiliated with the general Social Security scheme and the special scheme for coal miners are published on 31 December, based on the Location of Affiliates' Contribution Account. The information comes from the statistical treatment of the affiliation file to the different Social Security schemes of the General Treasury of Social Security carried out by the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Families.

In the general scheme and the special scheme for coal miners, workers are grouped into contribution accounts. These accounts consist of a set of workers employed by others who carry out their work activity in one or various work centres of the same company, in the same province and, in general, carry out a similar main activity and have homogeneous characteristics with regard to their Social Security contributions.

Current Territorial Distribution
