Confidentiality - policy

Statistics Denmark's policy on confidentiality.

Confidentiality - data treatment

In connection to publication and delivery of customized statistics, a so-called confidentiality test of data is made. The confidentiality test is made on the basis of two criteria:

  1. The number criteria: If one data cell contains less than 3 observations (enterprises) employment and financial information can not be published
  2. The dominance criteria: If one or two observations (enterprises) contained in one data cell, alone or together constitute a certain percentage of the total turnover of the cell, the turnover and other financial information for this group can not be published.

Documentation on methodology

See Eurostat-OECD Manual on Business Demography Statistics.
