These statistics are performed by the INE by virtue of the Agreement signed with the General Council of the Judiciary Branch (GCJB) on 14 February 1995.
An information collection system has been implemented via the Neutral Judicial Point platform, the integrated services network on the GCJB website since 2007.
Results are disseminated on a national, Autonomous Community and provincial level.
