Asylum Applications and Residence Permits

The statistics are comparable over time and can also be compared internationally.

Comparability - geographical

The statistics are internationally comparable.

Comparability over time

The statistics on residence permits reflect the law, and changes in legislation and regulations can give rise to problems with comparability over time.

The possibility to ask for asylum from abroad disappeared from 1. July 2002.

Coherence - cross domain

Statistics Denmark does not publish other statistics on this subject.

Statistics on this subject are also published by the Danish Immigration Service and as the basic figures are the same as the data Statistics Denmark receive from the Immigration Service the figures are comparable.

Coherence - internal

There is a good internal coherence.
