Denmark Net Unemployed Persons
In Denmark, the statistics comprise unemployed persons insured against unemployment and unemployed non-insured persons claiming cash benefits including non-insured persons and insured unemployed persons, who are not yet entitled to claim unemployment benefits or who have lost their right to claim unemployment benefits. It is assumed that unemployed non-insured persons, who do not claim cash benefits, are only to a limited extent registered with the job centers and are thus excluded from the statistics. The unemployment statistics exclude persons whose main occupation is activation or leave, including persons claiming leave allowance or early retirement benefit. These persons are covered by special statistics (AMFORA statistics) on labor market policy measures, which are compiled quarterly. Payments of unemployment benefit are calculated on the basis of calendar weeks, while unemployment is calculated weekly for both insured and non-insured persons.
