Methodological note

Definition of concepts

Gross operating surplus
Surplus generated by operational activities after compensating for the work factor. This can be calculated as the difference between gross value added at factor cost and personnel costs.
Gross value added at market prices
It is calculated upon the basis of the production value less intermediate consumption, which is made up of the sum of the consumption of raw materials and other supplies and expenditure on external services.
Gross value added at factor cost
Gross income from operating activities once the effects of the operating subsidies and indirect taxes have been adjusted. It is calculated upon the basis of the gross value added at market prices, deducting the taxes linked to production and products and adding the operating
Production vale
Number of final goods and services produced by the company during the year. It is equal to the turnover, plus the changes in inventories of products finished and in progress, plus the work performed by the company for its assets (capitalized production), plus accessory income and any other related to current management, less the consumption of goods and work performed by other companies.

Methodological aspects

The Structural Business Statistics in the Service Sector, called the Annual Services Survey prior to the reference year 2014, is a sample-based survey that is produced annually by the INE in order to study the economic characteristics of companies in almost all of the market services sector (number of establishments, employment, income and operating costs, etc.) and estimate the main micromagnitudes. Idescat makes a detailed treatment for Catalonia and collaborates with the publishing of questionnaires.

The information about professional, scientific and technical activities, administrative and support service activities; that Idescat has produced using data from the from the INE is presented in two tables: main results and macromagnitudes.

Since 2008, the Annual services survey has been adapted to the new National classification of economic activities (CNAE-2009). This change involves a shift in the series that prevents inter-annual comparison between most sectors and some variables.

The correspondences between the sectors used and the Catalan classification of economic activities (CCAE-2009) is as follows:

CCAE-2009Groups of activities
45Wholesale and retail trade; repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles
46Wholesale trade, except of motor vehicles and motorcycles
47Retail trade, except of motor vehicles and motorcycles
49-53Transportation and storage
58-63Information and communication
68Real estate activities
69-75 Professional, scientific and technical activities
77-82 Administrative and support service activities
90-93Arts, entertainment and recreation
95,96Other services

In 2009, 2010 and 2010, the "Other services" group was partially studied. From the year 2012 onwards, the two branches of this group will be studied again.

List of branches each year studied:

2008 2009 2010 2011 2012
Repair of computers and personal and household goods (div. 95)    YES    YES    YES   YES    YES
Other personal service activities (div. 96)    YES    –    –    –    YES

Several methodological improvements were applied to the Structural Business Statistics in 2016. The results for 2016 are therefore not strictly comparable with those for previous years.
