This paper presents the results of a study aimed to quantify the Nonprofit Institutions Sector, based on a review of the three theoretical approaches currently available to delimit the sector, i.e. the social economy approach, the organizational non-profits approach, and the national accounting view. Thus, the estimated value of the Non-Profit Institutions Sector’s total production of goods and services available to households amounted to over half a billion pesetas and the added value to 0.3 billion pesetas, while the number of employees was 118.575. These figures are for 1995, the study reference year.
