Methodological aspects

The benefits are a set of measures taken by Social Security to anticipate, rectify or overcome specific unfortunate situations or specific situations of need, which usually lead to a loss of income or excessive costs for those who suffer from them.

The pensions are economic benefits given by the Social Security, paid periodically and normally lasting for life or until the beneficiary reaches a predetermined age They can be contributive (when the right is acknowledged by virtue of contributions made) or non-contributive (when the person has no income or insufficient income and the remaining conditions established by the law are met).

The Statistics on Contributory Social Security Pensions are offered from two complementary perspectives: pensions by pensioner's municipality of residence and pensions by the province where the pension is registered.

The Statistics on Pensions and Pensioners by pensioner residence is the result of statistical processing by Idescat using the National Social Security Instituteand the Social Marine InstituteSocial Marine Institute's administrative pensions records, in accordance with a collaboration agreement with these two institutions in 2011. The aim is to obtain information as to the number and size of currently active pensions of the population residing in Catalan municipalities. This information is handled by the Provincial Directorates in Catalonia. Data is from 31 December.

Data for 2015 is not available.
