Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Collection of systematic information on education is a long-established practice in Denmark.

CONTENT:

We describe the education registers available through Statistics Denmark. In particular, we describe the most widely used register: the Population Education Register (PER).

VALIDITY AND COVERAGE:

In 2008, 96% of the Danish population aged 15-69 have non-missing education information in PER. For the immigrant population born in the same cohorts the coverage is 85-90%, which is a high coverage in an international context.

CONCLUSION:

The validity and coverage of the Danish education registers are very high.
