Danish Enterprise and Construction Authority (DECA), has now published an
analysis of the social and economic benefits associated with the decision
in 2002 to provide the official Danish address data “free of charge” for
public as well as commercial re-use.
The main conclusion of the study is that the direct financial benefits from
the agreement for society in the period 2005-2009 amount to around EUR 62
million (~DKK 471 million). Until 2009 the total costs of the agreement has
been around EUR 2 million.
In 2010 it is estimated that social benefits from the agreement will be
about EUR 14 million, while costs will total about EUR 0.2 million.
A 8-page memo presenting the study and the results is published in Danish
and English at the websitewww.adresse-info.dk – by these direct links:
News on the analysis has also been published on the European "ePSIPlatform"
