The Mercantile Companies Statistics (MC) was created by Order of 30 September 1938. Its objective is to measure the demographics of companies, providing monthly information, at the provincial and Autonomous Community levels, on the companies created, dissolved and those in which there have been changes in capital.

The source of information is the Central Mercantile Registry, which collects all provincial information on the registration of companies and entrepreneurs, as well as mercantile acts determined by law.
