If elected from a joint list, local list or other lists, they will be included in these lists, irrespective of party. The same applies to municipal council representatives and executive committee/county cabinet representatives. Re-elected representatives in the executive committee/county cabinet: Executive committee/county cabinet representatives are defined as re-elected if they were members of the sitting executive committee/county cabinet on the election day. Since 2003, information on re-elected representatives and number of periods for all municipal council representatives and county council representatives has been collected.

Confidentiality

Suppression if direct identification is possible with regard to sensitive information.

Comparability over time and space

Information on chairmen's parties is available back to 1934. Information on executive committees is available from the 1979 election, but only at county level for the earliest elections. Information on chairmen and deputy chairmen of the county councils is available back to 1979. Since 2003, information on all municipal council and county council representatives has been collected.

Accuracy and reliability

Sources of error and uncertainty

It is essential for the quality of the statistics that the information from the counties and municipalities is correct. If the elected representatives are listed as belonging to parties that stood for election, it is difficult to check if the distribution between the parties is correct. Furthermore, the representatives' parties are coded before registration and there is always a risk of errors despite comprehensive controls.
