Methodological aspects

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.

Les dades de la classificació per programes a partir de 2010 no són comparables amb les d'anys anteriors per un canvi de normativa (Ordre EHA/3565/2008, de 3 de desembre, per la que s'aprova l'estructura dels pressupostos de les entitats locals).

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.
