Notes:
n1/ With the publication of the figures for the I quarter of 2014, INEC adjusted the expansion factors from 2013 in order to match the results with the population projections made from the 2011 Population and Housing Census. Consult the methodological note published by the INEC in the link.
n2/ People working, whether or no family members, who participate in some economic activity using their own labor force in the home economic unit (help to one of its own account) or as a help to a person who in turn is employed (help to one in a roll pay), without receiving any type of payment, neither in money or in kind.
