Methodological aspects

The purpose of the School-Age Population Projections statistical operation (base 2016) is to define the scenario which best reflects the recent demographic evolution of the school-age population.

It provides the results of the projection pyramids by sex and individual ages from 0 to 20 and also by ages grouped by level of education (from 0 to 2, 3 to 5, 6 to 11, 12 to 15, 15 to 17 and 18 to 20 years old).

This operation, which is updated every five years, provides information for Catalonia, the provinces, the areas of the Territorial Plan, counties and the city of Barcelona and Education Territorial Services.

Idescat produces School-Age Population Projections from the Population Projections of Catalonia, which are also updated every five years.
