The railway statistics show the length of the railway network broken down by various categories of tracks. In addition, a calculation is made of the investments in the railway network. The statistics include all railways, including Metro, light rail, suburban train, inter-regional railways and private railways. Furthermore, the kilometric performance is shown, i.e. the number of kilometres covered by all trains on the Danish rail network.



Information on the railway network comes from the infrastructure owners (primarily Banedanmark). The price index for calculating fixed prices of investments originate from the National accounts.

The statistics include investments and maintenance costs, railway type and length as well as information on routing of tracks, security and electrification.


Information about the kilometric performance, i.e. the number of kilometres covered by train, is based on reporting from the railway companies.
Both sets of statistics are updated on an annual basis.

Statistics are also available on traffic accidents.
