Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The construction of the Swedish CDB and the data collection followed a template developed within the GGP. The template provided detailed guidelines for the collection, preparation, and documentation of the indicators. The database covers 16 main areas: Demography, Economy and Social Aspects, Labour and Employment, Parental Leave, Pension, Childcare, Military, Unemployment, Tax Benefits, Housing, Legal Aspects, Education, Health, Elderly Care, Politics, Culture. Each of these main domains contains more detailed indicators at the national or subregional (Riskområde NUTS2) level. In total, there are 243 indicators. Many of these indicators were calculated using Swedish Register Data. These indicators were not available in publicly accessible statistics and the Swedish CDB is thus currently the only database to provide them. The Swedish CDB offers a rich and unique set of time-series indicators at the national and subregional level.
