The data presented in this article is supplemental data related to the research article entitled “Automated external defibrillator accessibility is crucial for bystander defibrillation and survival: a registry-based study” (Karlsson et al., 2019). We present detailed data concerning: 1) the type of location for deployed and registered automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in the nationwide Danish AED Network; 2) the number of registered AEDs in the nationwide Danish AED Network, and changes in AED registration (according to year and type of AED location); 3) the number of AEDs being withdrawn from the AED network between the years 2007–2016. We also report data on baseline cardiac arrest-related characteristics of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs) that occurred in Copenhagen, Denmark, between 2008 and 2016. Cardiac arrest-related characteristics are further described according to AED accessibility (accessible vs. inaccessible AED at the time of OHCA) for OHCAs covered by an AED (AED ≤200 m route distance of an OHCA). Finally, we report data on distance to the nearest accessible AED for bystander defibrillated OHCAs covered by an AED ≤200 m route distance where the AED was inaccessible at the time of OHCA.
