Data collection

Survey method and source data

Data source used to acquire the data is the report of the Ministry of Welfare "Social services and social aid in country/local government of the city under state jurisdiction in 20X".

Data included in the report cover country as a whole and total numbers in cities under state jurisdiction, as well as breakdown by country.

Data revision

The published data are final and will not be adjusted.

Comparability

Comparability over time

Data on home care are available since 1994. Starting from 2010 data include care-takers provided by local government (do not include services purchased by local government), therefore data on number of care-takers, number of persons receiving home care per one care-taker can not be compared with the information on previous years.

Other comparability

Ministry of Welfare

Ministry of Welfare on its home page publishes information on social services and social aid in country/local government.
