Sampling error

Not relevant for these statistics.

Non-sampling error

For those immigrations which can't be linked with a residence permit due to missing CPR-number in the register on foreigners the residence permit is imputed (see section 3.5 on data compilation). These residence permits will be connected with some uncertainty.

Quality management

Statistics Denmark follows the recommendations on organisation and management of quality given in the Code of Practice for European Statistics (CoP) and the implementation guidelines given in the Quality Assurance Framework of the European Statistical System (QAF). A Working Group on Quality and a central quality assurance function have been established to continuously carry through control of products and processes.

Quality assurance

Statistics Denmark follows the principles in the Code of Practice for European Statistics (CoP) and uses the Quality Assurance Framework of the European Statistical System (QAF) for the implementation of the principles. This involves continuous decentralized and central control of products and processes based on documentation following international standards. The central quality assurance function reports to the Working Group on Quality. Reports include suggestions for improvement that are assessed, decided and subsequently implemented.

Data revision - policy

Statistics Denmark revises published figures in accordance with the Revision Policy for Statistics Denmark. The common procedures and principles of the Revision Policy are for some statistics supplemented by a specific revision practice.

Data revision practice

The quarterly figures are provisional. Yearly figures are final. Previously published data will be corrected in a the next publication. This happens when the Danish Immigration Service updates its register after the submission of information to Statistics Denmark. Such corrections are usually minor.
