“Quadros de Pessoal” database is collected annually by the Strategy and Planning Office at the Ministry of Labour and Social Solidarity (GEP/MTSS). It results from a survey applied to all Portuguese companies and it collects information about these companies’ establishments and workers. Since 2003 the parish of the establishment is one of the collected information. The possibility to do an analysis at the parish level allows a more comprehensive view of what happens inside the municipalities.
