Census section and Districts contains the annual series of sectioning corresponding to the Electoral Census (EC) and Municipal Population Board (PA). The sectioning of the 2001 and 2011 Census of Population and Housing (CPV) is added to the official date of its collection, November 1. The elements of each series are two: Districts only and, within them, Sections. The territorial delimitation of the Census Sections establishes the scope of this statistical unit inferior to the municipality that is the basis of most statistical operations of the National Statistical System: censuses, patterns, surveys and other operations Statistics. Each municipality is divided into one or more Census Sections and there is no part of the municipality that does not belong to a Census Section. The sections of a municipality are grouped into one or more Census Districts and each Section belongs to a Census District. The series starts from 2007, at 1 January for each year, including also census dates, such as 1 November for the years 2001 and 2011. Minimum visibility scale: 1:1,000,000 for District and 1:250,000 for Censal Section.
