Services to adults with disability and marginalised adults

The statistics time series is comparable from 4th quarter of 2013 to 4th quarter of 2021. However, the data quality is not known until Q1 2015 and data are only complete from Q1 2018 to Q4 2021 inclusive. The statistics can best be compared to the data on disability services that were previously reported to the Statistics Social resources. The statistics are not directly comparable with international statistics.

Comparability - geographical

The statistics are not directly comparable to any international statistics because the services included in the statistics are defined by Danish law.

Comparability over time

The time series can best be compared to previously published data on disability services. These data can be found in tables RESV01 to RESV05, which is available in StatBank Denmark. The tables are based on summary information reported annually by the municipalities to the statistics Social resources. Please note that the Social resources and Disability and marginalized adults differ in some ways. There are differences in the calculation methods but the most important difference is that Disability and marginalized adults is calculated based on civil registration numbers (CPR).

Another difference is that Disability and marginalized adults adults has been reported by the municipality which provides the individual service, and not the municipality which pays for the service, as was the case Social resources. This can mean large differences in the number of cases for each municipality. Due to the lack of coverage in Disability and marginalized adults you cannot compare it to the previous national totals in the Social resources. Furthermore, seeing that some municipalities have not approved all data for the period the dataset covers, one should be careful when comparing summarized data for all municipalities across all quarters. In total 98 municipalities have approved data for this release. 72 of the municipalities have approved all data for entire period. The period Q1 2018 to Q4 of 2021 contain data for all 98 municipalities.

Coherence - cross domain

Statistics Denmark is not aware of other statistics in this area.

Coherence - internal

It is estimated the internal consistency of the data is high.
