Complete table package

Statistics Sweden produces tailor-made statistical packages for the municipal authorities. The packages are made to fill the needs for different planning purposes.

As the planning process at local government level often calls for a more detailed geographical breakdown than that provided by the official statistics, Statistics Sweden has developed the Key-Code system. The Key-Code system (in Swedish "NYKO") is designed for generating statistics on sub-areas within a municipality.

The Key-Code system

Key-coding is defined as "dividing a municipality into an optional number of small areas". The real estate is the smallest component in the area breakdown. Real estates are aggregated to form the sub-areas designed by the municipal authority. Each estate has a real estate designation, and all individuals in the Total Population Register are linked to a real estate. This triple link between individual - property - area division furnishes the technical capability for reporting demographic statistics by sub-area. The real estate designation is the "key" that opens the door between area division and, in this case, the Population Register. For this reason the name "Key-Code system" was chosen.

The Key-Code system is hierarchical in structure and the smallest sub-areas formed from one or more real estates may be aggregated to form areas of growing size. In this way, the municipal authority will be able to obtain statistics reported at a level adapted to reflect the planning situation.
