Methodological note

Methodological aspects

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.

The number of pensions is not the same as the number of pensioners, as this refers to physical persons. Therefore, a pensioner may receive one or more different pensions (retired and widowed, general regime and special regime for self-employed workers, etc.).

Current Territorial Distribution

At present, Catalonia is divided into 41 counties, 1 singular territorial entity (Aran) and 8 areas of the Territorial Plan, according to the latest territorial changes, which affect the areas of El Penedès and the Central Counties, Aran and El Moianès.
