Comparison of Goods Trade and Goods Payments

Since summer 1999 Statistics Denmark and Danmarks Nationalbank have compared the compilation of trade in goods in the external trade statistics with the compilation of goods payments in the settlement statistics. The comparative survey was instigated by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and took advantage of the particulars in the new reporting system for settlement statistics launched by the Nationalbank in October 1998. The reason for the survey was a considerable discrepancy between the official current account and current account of payments in 1998.
