How to design a Spanish population data collection tool
How to use the Spanish population information system (PIS) to collect and analyse data in Spain.
article Spanish population figures and population growth statistics are now available for the first time, and you can download them for free from our Spanish population and population information systems (PISS) database.
The data sets are available in two formats: Spanish and Catalan.
The Spanish population is comprised of the population of Spain, and its growth is tracked by the national census (CEN) and its national statistics office.
The Catalan population is divided into regions, which account for about 15 per cent of the total population.
This is why, for example, the Catalan region of Catalonia has a population of over 200,000.
The most commonly used figures for population in Spain are the number of inhabitants in each county (county-level figures), which are collected by the regional statistical authority (ASRA) and published by the CEN.
The ASRA publishes a Catalonian version of the census, which is called the Cencias Catalansa.
In 2018, the ASRA published the data for Catalonia, and it shows a population increase of around 7,600, or 5.5 per cent.
The figures for other regions and counties in Spain, however, are based on the Censa Catalana, which only counts those citizens who live in those counties, rather than all citizens.
These figures include those who have moved to other counties in the past year.
The PISS database allows you to create an interactive tool to use to track population changes in Spain and to calculate population growth rates.
It is a great resource for anyone who is interested in data collection and analysis.
Here are some useful tools that you might be interested in.
