Methodological note

The employed persons is people aged 16 or over who are working either as employees or as self-employed.

The activity sector in the employed population is determined by the main activity carried out by the organization that the employed person works for, and not by the work carried out by that person. From the 1st quarter of 2008 onwards, economic activities have been classified using the new Catalan Classification of Economic Activities 2009 (CCEA-2009).

The delimitation of the activities that form part of the cultural sector was updated in the last quarter of 2014 with the publication of the new Statistic and Accounts of Cultural Enterprises. This update involved a review of all the data offered by this indicator. The definition of activities that form part of the cultural sector used by Idescat is based primarily on methodological work carried out by the European Statistical System Network on Culture (ESSnet-Culture, in PDF), created by the European Commission and Eurostat. 2009 UNESCO Framework for Cultural Statistics was also taken into account. The present definition includes the following CCEA-2009 groups:

The Active Population Survey (APS) is the main source for finding out about the labour market. It is sample research carried out by the INE using the methodology of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Statistical Office of the European Commission (Eurostat). The survey is taken every quarter and its main purpose is to investigate the relationship with people's economic activity.

The data for the 2002–2013 period was revised in May 2014 since the new reference population figures from the Population and Housing Census 2011 and the introduction of new criteria in the calibration of the expansion factors have made it necessary to recalculate the Active Population Survey series for the period in question.
