New Tables and Method

Statistics Greenland receives data on persons receiving educational aid from public funds in connection with attending a qualifying education. The data are received from the Department of Student Grants under the Ministry of Industry and Labour Market and are validated by the institutions and by Statistics Greenland. In consequence of a new validation method, the figures are not directly comparable with previously published figures in earlier editions of the statistical yearbook, except for the year 2008.


In the counts, the school year starting on 1 July and ending on 30 June the following year is used as a starting point.
