International Trade in Goods

Aggregated statistics for selected countries and country groups and for aggregated commodity groups are published monthly 40 days after the end of the reference period. Detailed statistics are published 70 days after the end of the reference period.

The statistics are usually published without delay in relation to the scheduled date, which is announced at least 3 months in advance on Statistics Denmark's website

Timeliness and time lag - final results

Aggregated statistics for selected countries and country groups and for aggregated commodity groups are published monthly 40 days after the end of the reference period. Detailed statistics are published 70 days after the end of the reference period.

All months of the reference year are revised in connection with each publication of statistics up to and including October in the following year. Subsequently, figures will not be revised for a whole year. The figures are also revised in October in the two following years. This implies that final figures for external trade in goods are published about 2½ years after the end of the statistical year. This revision practice is coordinated with the Balance of Payments Statistics and the National Accounts Statistics.

Punctuality

The statistics are usually published without delay in relation to the scheduled date, which is announced at least 3 months in advance on Statistics Denmark's website.

Trade data are without delay submitted to Eurostat on the same day as statistics are published.
