Reusable assistive products 2022

The purpose of the statistics Reusable assistive products is to shed light on the municipalities' lending of reusable assistive products from the municipalities' aid depots. These are reusable assistive products allocated according to selected sections in the Act of Social Service, the Working Environment Act and the Health Act. The statistics are used to account for how many people are given reusable assistive products and for the type of product that is handed out. The statistics are under development and are expected to be published annually and for the first time in 2023.

Statistical processing

Data for the statistics on reusable assistive products are collected quarterly from the municipalities via automatic reports from the professional systems or via a web-based reporting solution. The collected data goes through an error-finding procedure, where the municipalities receive aggregated data, which they must approve. When the data has been validated by the municipalities and finally approved, Statistics Denmark processes the reports and removes invalid data.

Accuracy and reliability

This publication is based on data from 97 municipalities where 87 municipalities have approved all of their data. Precision and reliability are primarily affected by inadequate reports from the municipalities. This is partly due to the fact that the municipalities might experience technical challenges in setting up the system-to-system solutions used for data reporting.
