International organisation and outsourcing

Data from the survey may be compared to the data collected in the surveys from 2007, 2012 and 2017. Furthermore it will be possible to compare the results of the Danish survey to those from a range of other EU-countries. Data may also be compared to data from statistics on Accounts for non-agricultural industries and General enterprise statistics, for the activities and size-classes which are covered.

Comparability - geographical

A comparable survey is being carried out in a number of EU countries, and comparable results will be published by Eurostat in 2022.

Comparability over time

The statistics has previously been collected for the periods 2001-2006, 2009-2011 and 2014-2016. As a range of data has been collected in all three surveys, these data may be compared.

Coherence - cross domain

The statistics is based on same population within the non-agricultural private sector as the statistics of Accounts for non-agricultural industries and General enterprise statistics, except for the cut-off of 50 or more employees. Data from the statistics for enterprises with 50 or more employees may therefore be compared to the statistics on international outsourcing.

Coherence - internal

The final statistical dataset has a high degree of internal consistency. Internal consistency has been a focal point throughout the work of data validation.
