The statistics can best be compared to data on disability benefits previously reported to the statistics on social resources. Data is not directly comparable to any international statistics.
The statistics are not directly comparable to any international statistics, because the services included in the statistics are defined by Danish law.
The time series can best be compared to previously published data on disability services. These data can be found in tables RESV01 to RESV05, which can be found in the StatBank. The tables are based on summarized information reported annually by the municipalities to the statistics on social resources. Here, however, you should be aware that there are data breaches in some time series. There are data breaches between the statistics on social resources and the current release due to differences in the calculation methods. The main difference is that data in the current statistics is reported on the individual level. Another difference is that data for the statistics of disability and marginalized adults has been reported by the municipality which provides the individual service, and not the municipality which pays for the service, as is the case in the statistics on social resources. This can mean large differences in the number of cases for each municipality. Due to the lack of coverage in the statistics of disability and marginalized adults you cannot compare previous national aggregates in the statistics on social resources with the current release. Because some municipalities have not approved data for all quarters of the period, which the dataset covers, one should be careful when comparing summarized data for all municipalities across all quarters. In total 93 municipalities have approved data for publishing.
Statistics Denmark do not know of other statistics in this area.
Data has a high degree of internal consistency.
