Disability and marginalized adults

It is the municipalities of the country, which provide citizens the selected services and report data to Statistics Denmark. Data for the statistics is collected monthly via automatic reports from the administrative systems used by the municipalities. Alternatively, the municipalities report data via a manual reporting solution, which is made available by Statistics Denmark. The reported data are validated by the municipalities, which must approve that their data can be used for statistics and publication. Before data is published, Statistics Denmark removes invalid data and adjusts different varieties of duplicate services.

Source data

Data originates primarily from the IT systems that are used in the municipalities to administrate the provided services. This data is transferred automatically and directly to Statistics Denmark through system-to-system solutions. The automatic reporting is developed and maintained by the municipalities' IT providers.

Other municipalities report data manually via an internet-based reporting solution, which is made available by Statistics Denmark. In the internet-based reporting solution, they maintain their data in parallel with their regular administration of the services, typically because their administrative IT systems cannot report directly to Statistics Denmark.

Data on the services is reported by the municipality, which has provided the service to the individual citizen. In this connection, it should be noted that some municipalities have entered into administrative cooperation in which a municipality, in addition to reporting on its own behalf, also reports on behalf of another municipality. The municipality of Ishøj reports data on behalf of Vallensbæk. Likewise, the municipality of Tårnby reports data on behalf of Dragør. The statistics will therefore never contain reports from Vallensbæk and Dragør.

Frequency of data collection

Data is reported monthly.

Data collection

Data is reported primarily directly from the administrative systems used by the municipalities. Alternatively, data can be reported manually via an internet-based reporting solution provided by Statistics Denmark.

Data validation

Statistics Denmark performs a number of data controls. For example, data is checked for invalid codes for services and target groups. The reported data is presented in a report sent to the individual municipality. The municipality will be alerted to any errors that need to be corrected. When the number of errors in data is minimized, Statistics Denmark asks whether the municipality can approve data to be used for statistics and publication.

Some municipalities can only approve data for some quarters and/or some types of services. Quarters or services that are not approved are not part of the published figures in the StatBank. The registry itself contains information about all reported data, and the variable "GodkendtPeriode" indicates whether the municipality has approved data.

In total, 93 municipalities have approved data for this release.

Data compilation

In Statistics Denmark’s data processing, invalid data is removed. This can be services reported with invalid codes. Services that contain invalid use of start and end dates are deleted (for example, where a service end date is before the start date).

The reported data is compared to Statistics Denmark's register of dead citizens. If a service is granted to a citizen who is dead, the citizen's date of death is used as the end date of the service provided.

The statistics cover services for adults, which in this regard is persons over 18 years old. If data has been reported indicating that a person under the age of 18 has been provided with a service, this data will be removed.

Finally, data is adjusted for different varieties of duplicate services. For example, if a citizen receives the same type of service several times during the same period, data is adjusted so that the citizen appears with one course in the period per. type of service. In addition, it is checked whether a citizen receives reciprocal services in the same period. An example of this may be that a citizen cannot be staying in a long-term housing service, while the citizen is granted a temporary stay at another housing facility.

Adjustment

No corrections of data are made, other than the ones described in section ’3.5’.
