Data compilation

The housing benefit amount is in some cases reduced due to an upper threshold for the total amount of cash benefit. The actual paid amount used in these statistics is adjusted accordingly. The subsidy rate for a household can changes in the middle of a month for several reasons. In that case, a full month's rate of the most recent housing benefit rate is used. The statistics include the average, median, upper and lower quartile of housing benefit payments and the number of households receiving housing benefits aggregated by municipality (BOST63 ) and age (BOST64).
