Survey of Financial Competences

The Survey of Financial Competences (ECF) is a joint initiative of the Banco de España and the Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores under the Financial Education Plan and is included in the National Statistics Plan.

It will be conducted for the first time between 2016 and 2017 with the aim of measuring the financial competences of the adult population in Spain.

This study benefits from the cooperation of the National Statistics Institute that has drawn a large sample of randomly selected individuals, representative of the entire Spanish territory and of each of its regions (Comunidades Autónomas).

Through personal interviews, information will be collected both on the financial knowledge of the person chosen at random to answer the interview, as well as the knowledge available at the household.
