Why statistics are important

Statistics provide the information needed for policy-makers to make evidence-based decisions; for citizens to form opinions and hold governments accountable; for businesses to make sound decisions; and for researchers to analyse society. Assisting other national statistics institutes in producing statistics of high quality is important to Statistics Denmark. 

Institutional cooperation

Statistics Denmark believes in mutual cooperation between equal partners and work closely with the beneficiary institution to ensure national ownership - a key to development.

We prefer to carry out long-term institutional cooperation in order to achieve lasting results and to develop a strong relationship with the beneficiary institution and our partners.
