The Structural Business Statistics in the Service Sector (called the Annual Services Survey prior to the reference year 2014), is the main source of structural information for all market services. It is a sample survey performed annually by the National Statistical Institute (INE) in collaboration with the Statistical Institute of Catalonia (Idescat) in the Catalan territory. Its fundamental objective is the study of the economic characteristics of companies in the sector, such as their primary activities and employment, as well as accounting data such as expenses or income.
The statistical unit used in the research is companies whose main economic activity is to provide one of the services described in following. A company is considered to be the smallest combination of legal entities that make up an organizational unit that produces goods or services and has a certain degree of autonomy in regard to decision-making. A company may carry out its activities in one or several local units (establishments). The data published for Catalonia regarding this statistic refers to the activities developed by the company units in Catalonia, according to the Catalan Classification of Economic Activities 2009 (CCAE-2009). Until 2007, the classification used was CCAE-93.
