INEbase / History
This section contains a virtual library, which allows access to a vast historical collection of INE publications previously only available on paper or microfiches at the INE buildings.
The publications contained in this section are very comprehensive, although -as opposed to other virtual libraries- they are not available to download completely. Users can browse them thanks to a hierarchical index, similar to that of the original publication, until reaching the table. This allows users to search for information more effectively. There is also a search tool based on the titles and content of the tables. The files, in PDF format, allow users to search for chains of text in the document, since the INE has processed all publications using optical character recognition.
NOTE on PDF files: to view these documents you will need a version of Acrobat Reader that is compatible with your browser.
Important: Original documents are only available in Spanish.
