Methodological note

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

The unemployed persons is people aged 16 or over who are out of work, available to work and actively seeking work.

The active population is made up of the employed and unemployed persons. It is people aged 16 or over who are working or are available to work.

The activity rate is calculated by dividing the active population by the population aged 16 or over.

The employment rate is calculated by dividing the employed persons by the population aged 16 or over.

The unemployment rate is calculated by dividing the unemployed persons by the active population.

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.
