Statistics Denmark's collection of historical statistics contains a large number of national accounts-related publications, also in Danish under Historical Statistics.
The statistics are published in a number of tables in the StatBank under Economy.
More detailed data are available at a charge. It is possible to buy data from the approximately 2,350 product balances at current prices, prices of the previous year and at constant prices, typically in the form of, e.g. a single product balance or the product composition of a given consumption group.
Information on gross fixed capital formation is also sold in its most detailed form, i.e. as information on the product composition of a given industry.
Please contact the office for National Accounts if you wish to hear more about the possibilities for tailored national accounts data.
A database of national accounts figures is also provided to ADAM (the macroeconomic model in Statistics Denmark). External users can access ADAM's database for a fee.
