Municipal accounts

The statistics monitor the current and capital accounts of the municipalities and how they are financed. The accounts are subdivided into several purposes (accounts) and by type of transaction. The accounts make it possible to see e.g. the expenses of the municipalities for public schools and daycare.


Statistics Denmark has since 1977 electronically received and stored data on the municipality and region (formerly county) accounts.

The municipality and region structure reform in 2007 meant that their areas of responsibility and the municipality and county budget- and account system changed, the counties were replaced by the regions, and that it can thus be hard to compare 2006 with 2007.
