Danmarks Statistics

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Danmarks Statistik ( dt . Denmark's statistics ) is a Danish NGO based in Copenhagen , for the compilation of statistics such as demographics , employment szahlen, trade balances is responsible and other areas about Danish society.

Danmarks Statistics makes extensive use of the data published by the administrations to compile the statistics. Since 1981, the censuses have been compiled entirely from the register. The processed data has been made available to the public since 1924, and electronically since 2001 free of charge.


After the first Danish-Norwegian censuses in 1769 and 1787, the forerunner for official statistical processing was created in 1833 with the "Table Commissions", which consisted of high-ranking officials.

On December 1, 1849 a law on the independence of the statistical organization from state control came into force, the then newly founded "Statistiske Bureau" (German statistical office ) was first part of the Ministry of the Interior, from 1853 then part of the Ministry of Finance.

In 1895 the “Statistiske Bureau” was renamed “Statens Statistiske Bureau” (German State Statistical Office ), and from 1896 the Statistical Yearbook was published . In 1913 the name of the office was changed to “Statistisk Departement” (German statistical department ). Between 1924 and 1958 other areas of the economy were included in the statistics; from 1961 the statistical department was subordinate to the Ministry of Economic Affairs.

The Danish Statistics Act, which came into force in 1966, allowed for more independent management under the supervision of a national statistician. The CPR number introduced in 1968 for every citizen of Denmark was, in addition to the introduction of the EDP, the basis for the register-based census, which could first be carried out in 1981.

Since 2001, every internet user has had the opportunity to access the data from Danmarks Statistics online.

International cooperation

As a member of the EU, Denmark also participates in the compilation, processing and dissemination of statistics. Danmarks Statistics is also actively involved in Nordic and other international statistical collaborations, such as the UN Conference of European Statisticians (CES) and statistical collaboration with the OECD , ILO , UNECE and others.
