What is BELab?

Logo Belab

Microdata bases are a valuable source of information on the behaviour of economic agents. Exploiting them can make for a better and deeper understanding of reality. The Banco de España data Laboratory (BELab) has been created with the aim of providing the research community with greater access to high-quality microdata, in a controlled environment that ensures data confidentiality, through on-site or remote means depending on the sensitivity level of the data.


  • Remote Access to BELab is now available
  • Access to new databases:
    • Microdata on consolidated non-financial corporate groups (CBC)
    • Microdata on securities issuers
