Methodological note

The Marriages Statistics provide information on the number and characteristics of the marriages of residents of Catalonia entered into during a given year.

The Crude Marriage rate is the ratio between the number of weddings in a certain year and the population halfway through the period. Expressed in so many per thousand.

The original source of the data are the statistical bulletins on marriages involving people living in Catalonia and registered in civil registers.Until 2011, the data refers to the registrations made in Catalonia of people who reside there. From 2012 onwards, it includes all events involving residents in Catalonia who have been registered in other autonomous communities.

From 2012 onwards, the data is reported annually in two phases: the provisional data, based on events concerning residents registered with civil registries of Catalonia, and the definitive data, with events concerning all residents (including those registered with civil registries in other autonomous communities).
