These statistics are meant to provide easy, simple access to basic facts, and answer questions on the listening and viewing habits of the population. They show, for instance, how high the viewing figures for different TV channels are, and how many minutes the population spends listening to radio or watching TV each day. The statistics have previously been published as a part of the now defunct MedieStatistikBanken, started in 2006. MedieStatistikBanken was set up by the former Danish Media Secretariat (now part of the Danish Agency for Culture) in collaboration with the media industry and Statistics Denmark. The statistics were taken over to the Denmark Statistics-owned StatBank Denmark in 2012.
Radio and TV statistics "Consumption" cover a wide range of subjects and the documentation is therefore divided into three separate documentation of statistics; Distribution, Consumption and Advertising. The Radio and TV Statistics "Consumption" shows the use of radio and TV by the population, e.g. viewing and broadcast times for radio and TV stations. Continuous profiling of consumer habits is provided by data from Gallup's TV Meter and Radio Index, the official, industry-recognized surveys of population listening and viewing habits.
The role of Statistics Denmark with respect to this statistics is solely to assure the quality and communicate information that is selected, collected, processed and disseminated by other producers of statistics/data suppliers. Please refer to the original sources for a detailed review of the statistical processing.

Statistics Denmark obtains the data directly from the data supplier. The data supplied is subject to a quality check, but no calculations of uncertainty are made.
Timeliness and punctuality
