Hospitalization

The statistics are published 5-10 months after the end of the year. The punctuality is high.

Timeliness and time lag - final results

Only final figures are prepared.

The statistics are published within 10 months after the end of the reference period.

Until 2012, the time for delivery of data by the Danish Health Authority varied somewhat which caused the statistics for some years to be published much later than usual after the end of the reference year. One of the reasons for this was the restructuring of the National Hospital Discharge Register.

Publication time lag in recent years:

  • 2017: 6 months, 12 days
  • 2016: 9 months, 11 days
  • 2015: 5 months, 20 days
  • 2014: 9 months, 20 days
  • 2013: 9 months, 21 days
  • 2012: 10 months, 19 days
  • 2011: 9 months, 5 days -2010: 11 months, 22 days
  • 2009: 21 months, 11 days
  • 2008: 26 months, 29 days
  • 2007: 16 months, 25 days
  • 2006: 17 months, 17 days

Punctuality

The statistics are usually published without delay in relation to the pre-announced dates of publication.
