Statistics Portugal and the Directorate-General for Maritime Policy (DGPM) produce measurements of the ocean economy using a methodology known as satellite accounting. The official economic statistics estimated through the Portuguese Ocean Economy Satellite Account are made publicly available on Statistics Portugal's website. In addition, ocean-related socioeconomic indicators are available such as business statistics, labour force statistics and primary indicators such as fisheries statistics.


The OECD is partnering with the Portuguese Directorate-General for Maritime Policy (DGPM), the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, Portugal (FCT), and Statistics Portugal to produce new evidence on the use of Portugal’s Ocean Economy Satellite Account and of other socioeconomic statistics related to the ocean. Your contribution will help inform future policies on the measurement of ocean economic activity in Portugal.


The questionnaire you are about to answer has two related objectives:

  • Update current understanding of the user communities of the Portuguese Ocean Economy Satellite Account and other socioeconomic indicators related to the ocean
  • Explore the pathways through which ocean economy statistics and other socioeconomic statistics related to the ocean are transformed into actionable information


The information that we aim to obtain through this questionnaire will contribute to a better understanding of the societal value of public marine data. Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this questionnaire which should take you less than 15 minutes. You may save your progress in answering the questionnaire and return to it when you are ready if needed.


If you also use public marine data on the physical, biogeochemical, and biological properties of the ocean, as well as on hydrography, human activities, archaeology and others, please consider also answering the questionnaire here.
