Methodological note

The number of marriages during the year relative to the average population in that year. The value is expressed per 1000 inhabitants.

The data for Catalonia have been calculated using population estimates and figures on marriages statistics. 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).
