The statistics are relevant for ministries, researchers and interest organizations as a basis for analyzes of trends in the number of services provided and the recipients’ characteristics and living conditions.
The need among users of the statistics is primarily to be able to calculate the development in the number of services awarded and to link information about the recipients’ backgrounds in order to illustrate the effects of the services granted on the citizens' life situations.
Users of the statistics include ministries, researchers and interest organizations.
The statistics contain data on those persons who receive the selected services in the Social Services Act due to a disability or a type of social marginalization. Not all persons with a disability receive one of these services, and therefore the statistics’ definition of disability is limited, when compared to many researchers’ and interest organizations’ definitions of a disability.
User satisfaction has not yet been evaluated.
