The purpose of these statistics is to present selected key figures from the annual accounts of the municipalities, which is of particular interest, in a way that makes it easy to compare across municipalities. Key figures are comparable since 2008.
The figures should be interpreted with caution due to varying accounting methods across municipalities as well as over time. Also, adjustments are made continuously to the municipal accounting system.
These statistics contain 12 annual key indicators where accounting figures are compared with population figures in the individual municipalities. All key indicators are measured in DKK, both in current and fixed prices for all 98 Danish municipalities.
The key figures are prepared by applying tables from the database StatBank Denmark and from figures for price- and pay adjustments from the Ministry for the Interior and Housing.
The key figures open up the possibility of making comparisons across municipalities. Figures must be interpreted with caution due to both changes in the compilation methods and in the municipal accounting system. Further information with regard to the figures underlying the key figures, including the detailed municipality accounts is available from the database StatBank Denmark.
