Methodological note

Definition of concepts

Budget chapters
Units that refer to certain financial concepts structured from the point of view of income and expenditure.
Expression of the accounts for the economic plans of the public sector for a certain period of time (generally one year). Every public entity of a legal nature makes its own budget which shows, in disaggregated form, the corresponding forecasts for income and limitations of expenditure. Depending on the different phases, the budget may be:
Consolidated budget
Budget made by several public entities once they have compensated for their internal transfers.
Expenditure budget. Purchase of goods and services

Payments made by public bodies in order to cancel debts pending in relation to contracted credit.
Expenditure budget. Interests
Financial charges as a result of all types of obligations assumed by the relevant public body.
Expenditure budget. Real investments
Payments made directly by public bodies that are destined for the creation or acquisition of capital goods or services, and those destined for the acquisition of goods of an inventory nature that are necessary for its services to function, and expenses of an immaterial nature that are of an amortisable nature, i.e. that contribute to the maintenance of the activity of the public body in future financial years.
Expenditure budget. Staff payments
Payments made by a public organ to its staff in return for the work they do. Includes social contributions, benefits and expenses of a social nature.
Expenditure budget. Current transfers
Payments made by public bodies, without a direct counter-payment and that are aimed at financing current operations

Methodological aspects

A general vision is offered of the public sector in Catalonia, made up of autonomous, local and state administrations. Also included are economic relations with the European Union.

The first part refers to the Generalitat's budget and contains the preventive budget, by functions and chapters, the consolidated budget and the liquidated budget, as well as real investments in Catalan counties. Also presented are the budgets of autonomous administrative, commercial and financial, public law and commercial entities, and of those that manage Social Security and the Catalan Radio and Television Corporation.

Included a table for income and expenditure, by chapters, in accordance with the metodology ESA, a coherent and detailed set of accounts and tables that enable a systematic, comparable and complete view of economic activity in the European Union member states.

In terms of Local administration, the preventive budgets are presented for the four Catalan provinces, the budgets for county councils, by chapters and counties, and the aggregated budgets of all local councils by chapters and functions. Also included is county data for the rustic and urban property taxes.

As for State administration, data is offered on tax collection and current transfers made by the State to the Generalitat, as well as assignations for public investment contained in the State's general budgets. It should be noted that the place where taxes are collected is not always in the same territory where the obligation was generated.

The section on the European Union deals with subsidies and collections proceeding from different structural funds that are destined for Catalonia, whether by means of Autonomous, local or state administration, and the evolution of each of these funds: cohesion, ERDF, ESF, EAGGF-FIFG.

The chapter concludes with data of the staff of the catalan public administrations of the Governances and Institutional Relations Ministries through the Espai d'anàlisi de l'ocupació pública.

Recently, Law 23/2010, of July 22, divides Catalonia into eight territorial planning areas with the incorporation of the Penedès region. This new territorial area includes the counties of Alt Penedès, l'Anoia, el Baix Penedès and el Garraf. In consequence, the territorial boundaries of the area of Metropolità, Comarques centrals and Camp de Tarragona are modified, and their data is therefore not directly comparable with previous years.
