The statistics are primarily of interests for the central government and various government boards and are used for estimating and planning capacity and occupancy rates within social services. Core actors and users of the survey are actively involved in adjusting the content each year which means that user needs are taken into account.
The most common users are ministries, various government boards, municipalities, regions, trade unions, interest organizations, private enterprises and academia. The statistics are used for evaluating social services, planning, analysis, academic study, public debate and preparation of law.
Once a year users of the statistics are invited to a meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss adjustments to the content of the statistics as well as discussing users content with the statistics. Potential wishes to the services Statistics Denmark provides to the users are also discussed.
The statistics are not based on EU regulation.
