Benefit to disability car

The purpose of these statistics is to provide information on decisions on subsidies for disability cars as prescribed by section 114 of the Danish Social Services Act. These statistics were initiated in the Danish Social Appeals Board back in 1998. Until 1 July 2016, these statistics were managed by the Appeals Board, after which they were transferred to Statistics Denmark.
