I got these numbers from the official government of Denmark statistics page but the current unemployment rate seems a bit implausibly low:

At any rate, unless I’m badly misunderstanding what they’re reporting, Denmark seems to be weathering the current global downturn quite well.

Update

Al in comments points us to the OECD harmonized unemployment rate table which has Denmark at six percent unemployment. More plausible, and still quite good in light of the economic situation.
