Danish term or phrase: rykket sig en gang
In a European Commission text the above phrase appears in "I de fremsendte statistikker har en linie i skemaet beklageligvis rykket sig en gang, hvilket giver et misvisende billede." This appears to refer to a row in a table being misplaced but I'm not exactly sure how or where.

shifted a line
Explanation:
I share your understanding of the sentence. I understand it to mean that a figure and the thing it refers to don't match, as one or the other shifted a line upward or downward.
