The Population Register contains information on all persons who have resided in Greenland after 1 January 1977.
The purpose of the register is to be the basis for population statistics, and to supplement other personal information
with basic information about each person, like address and family relations.The Population register is updated with information from CPR (Administrative Population Register) where the following information is retrieved:
name, gender, age, place of birth, citizenship, marital status, reference to mother, father and spouse, address of residence and more.
According to ยง13 of the Act on Greenland Statistics, no person-related information is disclosed from the register, except for personal numbers, randomly drawn for surveys
event
Basically, it is said that changes in the size of the population over time can be explained by developments in the demographic components, ie:
Population (end of period) = Population (beginning of period) + number of live births + number of
immigrants - number of deaths - number of emigrants + corrections
In a perfect data world, it would not be necessary to operate a correction record. Information for the Greenlandic population statistics is based on extracts from the continuously updated
personal register CPR, where many changes in the country's population are registered. And with many changes, of course, incorrect entries are made, which may be corrected at a later date.
