Jobindsats.dk is a public database with statistics primarily aimed at being used by the job centres. It also contains indicators of recent reforms and can be used by several different actors.

Jobindsats.dk is a national statistics portal launched in 2007 by the Ministry of Employment. The website is hosted by the Danish Agency for Labour Market and Recruitment (STAR). Jobindsats.dk contains relevant historic and current data on active labour market policies in Denmark.

The legal basis of jobindsats.dk is set out in the Act of Organisation and Support of Active Labour Market Policy.

The primary purpose of jobindsats.dk is to create transparency regarding the work of the public employment service/job centres. Jobindsats.dk is targeted at local job centres with a specific focus on benchmarking and unemployment insurance funds, enabling job centres to carry out planning, management and follow-up procedures with respect to active labour market policies in their own municipality or unemployment insurance fund. Jobindsats.dk thus provides the best possible statistical foundation for decision-making. 

The statistics published by jobindsats.dk are as up-to-date as possible. Statistics are typically updated on a monthly basis with a time lag of one month. The statistics accessible on jobindsats.dk cover the period 2004 to present. The statistics published by jobindsats.dk are dynamic which means that once data has been updated retrospectively, the latest statistics will be published.

The statistics published by jobindsats.dk are accessible to anyone who has an interest in the Danish labour market, e.g. national and local politicians, journalists and other stakeholders (interest groups, unions, etc.).

Jobindsats.dk presents the possibility of benchmarking the performance of local job centres. Users can compare the results of active labour market policies across job centres:

  • with similar predefined framework conditions
  • with a similar population size
  • with a similarly-sized labour force
  • with proximity to the chosen job centre
  • within the borders of the Regional Labour Market Council area.

In order to ensure comparability across job centres, statistics in jobindsats.dk are calculated according to the same principles. Likewise, statistics about different social benefits are calculated according to the same principles.


Data is fed to jobindsats.dk from a variety of sources. All cash- and social benefits granted to citizens are registered in the municipalities’ electronic case management system. Jobindsats.dk is fed data from these case management systems about benefits paid to citizens. Jobindsats.dk also has access to a number of other registers, e.g. the Central Population Register (CPR), the Central Business Register, (CVR) and registers containing tax and income records. From these registers, data is brought together into a collective databank which forms the statistical basis of jobindsats.dk.

Jobindsats.dk includes statistical measurements of central labour market measures and benefits to citizens. These include:


  • Unemployment benefits
  • Social benefits
  • Early retirement pensions and early pensions

General employment indicators:

  • Employment per se
  • Unemployment indicators
  • Foreign labour working in Denmark
  • The minister’s annual goals for active labour market policy
  • Monitoring systems

The statistics published by jobindsats.dk also include key indicators of recent reforms of the labour market, the reform of the disability pension, the flexi-job scheme and the cash benefit reform.   Finally, jobindsats.dk offers the possibility to distribute the results on different variables, such as gender, age groups, ethnicity, visitation category, etc.

Jobindsats.dk is accessible to the general public on the link below (in Danish).
