The unemployment statistics monitors the structure and trends in the unemployed population and the causes of unemployment. The statistics are compiled on the basis of registers.
The statistics comprise all unemployed persons ages 16 to 64 insured against unemployment and non-insured persons included in the visitation category 1 and 3 (= available for work), who are claiming cash benefits under the Danish Social Assistance Act and who fulfill the international definition of unemployment. The gross unemployed population is defined as the sum of the registered (net-) unemployed population and persons in activation programs and who are, at the same time, considered to be available for work.
The data sources of the statistics are: The Register for Labour Market (RAM) and direct data reports from the municipalities/STAR concerning the match/visitation category and the scope of activation of recipients claiming social assistance. The statistics on the registered number of net unemployed have been compiled by Statistics Denmark since 1979.
Statistics Denmark revises published figures in accordance with the Revision Policy for Statistics Denmark. The common procedures and principles of the Revision Policy are for some statistics supplemented by a specific revision practice. The revision practice in this cases states, the definition of this time series is that the final actual unemployment figures are combined (they are all at least 6 months old) with the grossed-up provisional actual unemployment figures for the most recent months.
