PMH Municipal Population Register

The Municipal Population Register is the administrative register in which the residents of a municipality are identified and represents proof of their residence. Each town council is in charge of the creation, management and maintenance of its register. It is a register containing personal data regulated by the law regulating the basis of local government and data protection law.

In 1996, the system of continuous and computerised management of municipal population registers was introduced, in coordination with the INE. Starting in 1998, population figures have been obtained (up to the 1st of January of each year), which are declared official by the Council of Ministers (at the end of the year).

Idescat prepares a statistical analysis of the Municipal Population Register for the period 2000–2022. The information is disseminated by place of residence of the population to municipal level and census tract level, and is separated by sex, age, nationality and place of birth.

Starting in 2023, the Municipal Population Register only offers the population figure by sex for the municipalities, the counties and Aran and the provinces. The total figure for Catalonia is for information purposes only. The Annual Population Census becomes the reference source for the population at all territorial levels, except in cases where the use of the registered population is expressly required according to the procedure protected by Law 7/1985, of 2 April, regulating the bases of the local regime (LBRL) and the Regulation of population and territorial demarcation for local entities (RPDT).
