On-line database

In the StatBank, the statistics are published under the topic of disability in the following tables:

  • HAND01: Number of full-time services by municipality and type of service. Calculated as full-time services per quarter.

  • HAND02: Number of recipients of services by highest completed education, gender, age and marital status. The table contains data from the 57 municipalities which have approved data for the entire period from Q4 2013 through Q4 2018. Each person occurs once for each type of service received in each quarter. Therefore, one cannot summarize the number people across types of services. The table contains data on recipients' age, gender and marital status from Statistics Denmark's register of the population. Information about the recipient's education is obtained from the register of education. From these registers, information about the individual citizen is collected in each of the years covered by the statistics. For example, recipients in Q1 to Q4 of 2018 are linked with data from 2018 in the mentioned registers. Only people up to 69 years are included in the table.

  • HAND03: Number of full-time services by type of service and citizen's target group. Calculated as full-time services per quarter.

  • HAND04: Recipients by basis for allowance. Basis for allowance is calculated as the number of full-time allowances per quarter. The table contains data for the 57 municipalities which have approved data for the entire period from Q4 2013 through Q4 2018. Each person occurs once for each type of service received in each quarter. Therefore, one cannot summarize the number services across types of services. The table contains data on the recipients’ basis for allowance from the register of persons receiving public benefits. The register retrieves information about the individual citizen's basis for allowance in each of the quarters covered by the statistics of disability and marginalized adults. Only persons up to 64 years are included in the table. Information about the individual recipient's age is taken from the register of the population.

  • HAND05: Number of full-time services by municipality and type of service - as in HAND01 but calculated as full-time services per. year.

  • HAND06: Number of full-time services by municipality and type of service - as in HAND01 but calculated as number of full-time services per. 1.000 inhabitants (18 years or above) in the municipality per. quarter. Data on the number of inhabitants is retrieved from the register of the population.

  • HAND07: Number of recipients of services by municipality and type of service - as in HAND01 but calculated as number of recipients rather than number of full-time services per. quarter.

The tables HAND02, HAND04 and HAND06 in the StatBank are made by mergin basic data in the statistics of disability and marginalized adults with data from the following sources in Statistics Denmark: - Register of the population - Register of education - Register of persons receiving public benefits (16-64 years old)

In some tables in the StatBank, data is presented as the number of full-time services. Full-time benefits are calculated either per quarter or per year. As an example, if a service has been provided for 2 out of 3 months in a quarter it will count as 0.67 full-time services in that quarter. If a service has been provided for 2 months in a year, it will count as 0.17 full-time services in that year.
