MADRID — The average Spaniard is married, Catholic, owns their own house and earns EUR 1,122 a month, according to a new survey published Friday.

The Centre for Sociological Investigations (CIS) found professions like bricklaying and plumbing are more valued then being a lawyer because they pay more.

More than half of Spaniards are married (55.4 percent) and Catholic (77 percent).

More middle-class Spaniards vote for the Socialist Party (30 percent), are in employment (47 percent), have an average salary of EUR 1,122 a month and own their own home (83 percent).

Two out of three Spaniards live with a partner, though 3 million are not married.

The CIS survey said Spanish society is, of course, much more complicated.

But it threw up some surprises.

Being a judge or lawyer was not held in such high regard as being a bricklayer, plumber, computer worker or writer.
