In StatBank Denmark, the statistics are published under Disability care in the following tables:
HAND01: Number of full-time services grouped by municipality and type of service. Calculated as full-time services per quarter
HAND02: Number of recipients grouped by highest level of education, gender, age and marital status. The table contains data for 72 municipalities that have approved data for the entire period, from 1st quarter of 2015 to 4th quarter of 2021 inclusive. Every recipient counts as one for each disability service the person receives in a specific quarter (for instance if a person receives the same type of service more than once in a quarter, this person will count as one in the specific quarter). It is not possible to add up the number of persons across the services since a person can receive a number of different services. The information about the recipients' age, gender and marital status comes from Statistics Denmark's population register. The information about the recipients' education is derived from Statistics Denmark's education register. Data on the individual recipients are retrieved from these registers for every year the statistics cover. For instance, data on the recipients for all of the 4 quarters in 2021 are linked with data for 2021 from the previous mentioned registers . Only persons up to the age of 69 are included in the table.
HAND03: The number of full-time services grouped by type of service and target group. Calculated as full-time services per quarter.
HAND05: The number of full-time services grouped by municipality and type of service – like HAND01 but calculated as full-time services per year.
HAND06: The number of full-time services grouped by municipality and type of service – like HAND01 but calculated as full-time services per 1,000 inhabitants (18 years or older) in the municipality per quarter. Information about the number of inhabitants comes from Statistics Denmark's population register.
HAND07: The number of recipients grouped by municipality and type of service – like HAND01 but calculated as the number of recipients instead of the number of full-time services per quarter.
The tables HAND02, and HAND06 are produced by linking the statistics' primary data with the following sources at Statistics Denmark: - The population register - The education register- The register of people on benefits (16-64 years) In some tables the services are calculated as full-time services. Full-time services are calculated per quarter or per year. For instance, if a service has been provided in 2 out of 3 months of a quarter, it counts as 0.67 service in the specific quarter. A service that has been provided for 2 months in a year will count as 0.17 service in the specific year. In other cases, the numbers of recipients are calculated. Here one recipient count as one individual. I.e. that each person only count as one no matter how many times or how long they have received a service in the specific year or quarter. The two terms, full-time services and recipients, cannot be used to show anything about the intensity of the services in the period that they are provided for. Currently, intensity is not reported to the statistics, only the duration of the service.
