Municipal Data

The Municipal Data Office (OMD) is responsible for the management, quality, governance, analysis and dissemination of Barcelona City Council and all its associated entities data. At the same time, it works to publish high frequency data, which allow the development of public policies based on evidence, the evaluation of municipal actions and, the use of these data, by other institutions, companies and Barcelona citizens.

  • Statistics and Data Dissemination

    We present the figures for the city's resident population obtained from the Municipal Register of Inhabitants as of 1 January 2023. After two years of declines, Barcelona's registered population has risen to 1,660,435 residents, 1.2% more than a year ago. This is the second highest figure since 1991, second only to the figure before the pandemic.


    The upward trend is generalised: it affects all districts and a large majority of neighbourhoods. The increase is linked to the migratory movement, which has added 26,600 people. On the other hand, the fall in the birth rate is accentuated. 


    You can find all the data here. We would like to highlight a new interactive application that makes it easier to visualize study and download data on the municipal census, including its evolution since 1997.





  • Public Opinion

    You can now consult the results of the 2023 Municipal Barometer second wave, which indicates a recovery in the assessment of municipal management and in the Mayor score and confirms insecurity as the main city problem.


    You can also consult historical series of results.




  • Opinion polls

    The Municipal Services Survey is an annual survey carried out by interviewing 6,000 Barcelona residents, carried out between January and April 2023, and which collects the public's assessment of the services provided by the City Council. 


    You can consult the web application which includes this edition data and compare them interactively with other editions according to different variables (territorial, demographic, etc.).
