The Danish welfare state

A characteristic of the Danish welfare state – a variant of the so-called Scandinavian or universal welfare model – is that everyone have equal right to numerous welfare services.

Many of these welfare services are thus free of charge in Denmark, e.g. the educational system and large parts of the health care system.


The extensive welfare state is one of the main reasons for the Danish tax burden.
