Economic analysis and research

Available data

In this pilot phase, BELab offers controlled access to the microdata available at the Central Balance Sheet Data Office.

The Banco de España Central Balance Sheet Data Office is a service that analyses Spanish non-financial corporations’ economic and financial information.

The data offered in BELab are from the CBI (Integrated Central Balance Sheet Data Office Survey) database. This in turn draws on the CBA database, or Central Balance Sheet Data Office Annual Survey, comprising the direct and voluntary data contributions by reporting firms, and on the CBB database, comprising the obligatory filings of annual accounts in mercantile registries, which are disseminated in a controlled fashion under the agreement entered into by CORPME (the Spanish Association of Property and Mercantile Registrars), an entity party to these collaboration arrangements.

For more detailed knowledge of the information available, access is available to the Central Balance Sheet Data Office microdata user’s guide File PDF: Opens in a new window (660 KB) (MCB) and to a sample file with the variables available obtained using fictitious data.
