Methodological note

Methodological aspects

These accounts show the expenditures and financing of social protection in Catalonia: how the resources are distributed and the flows of financing that allow them to work.

The data are presented so that the results are comparable with other countries and regions, and the methodology used is from Eurostat's European System of Integrated Social Protection Statistics (SEEPROS). This methodology is based on a very broad concept of social protection, which includes both the activity of both public and private entities, as long as it is conducted with the objective of protecting a third party and that there is no equivalent and simultaneous balancing entry for the protected person.

ESSPROS methodology classifies social benefits in accordance with the following protective functions:

  • sickness and health
  • disability
  • old age
  • survivors
  • family and children
  • housing
  • unemployment
  • social exclusion
