Services to adults with disability and marginalised adults

The statistics are relevant for ministries, researchers and disability organizations as a basis for analyzes of the development in the number of services provided and the recipients’ characteristics and living conditions.

User Needs

The need among users of the statistics is primarily to be able to calculate the development in the number of allocated services and to link information about the recipients’ backgrounds in order to illustrate what effect the services have on the citizens' living conditions. Users of the statistics include ministries, researchers and disability organizations. The statistics contain data on the recipients who receive the selected services in accordance with the Act on Social Services due to a disability or a type of social marginalization. Not all persons with a disability receive one of these services, and therefore the statistics’ definition of disability is limited when compared to many researchers' and disability organizations' definition of a disability.

User Satisfaction

Statistics Denmark occasionally holds educational sessions for the municipalities where reporting etc. is gone over. In addition, the statistics are followed by the Ministry of Social Affairs, Housing and Senior Citizens and Local Government Denmark (KL) by means of a working group. The impression is that the user satisfaction among the municipalities and the end users is increasing. However, the satisfaction was previously affected by the fact that coverage was inadequate as well as the problems the municipalities experienced with the system-system-solutions.

Data completeness rate
