Statistics Denmark provides technical assistance to sister agencies in pre-accession and neighbour countries to the EU as well as in countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East to build up their capacity to produce reliable, comparable, timely and available national statistics.
Why statistics are important

Assisting other national statistics institutes in producing statistics of high quality is important to Statistics Denmark
Read our position on the importance of reliable and available information for development
Statistics Denmark believes in mutual cooperation between equal partners and works closely with the beneficiary institution to ensure national ownership - a key to development.
We prefer to carry out long-term institutional cooperation in order to gain an insight into the country's culture, and economic and social systems. Long-term cooperation is also the mean to develop a strong relationship with the beneficiary and our partners.
Statistics Denmark participates in capacity building projects on all aspects of the statistical production from data collection to processing to dissemination. We also have the capacity to provide technical assistance on issues on organisational management and statistical legislation and policy.
Statistics Denmark has experience in providing technical assistance in most statistical topics including:
- Specific areas within economic, social and business statistics
- Dissemination of statistical information
- Management and strategic planning
- Use of administrative registers for statistical purposes
- IT infrastructure
