A number of countries in Europe. primarily the Scandinavian countries, have expanded their population registers into a, comprehensive database. As described in this paper, the register in Denmark now includes information about the population, housing, roads, and civil authorities. This register is a cost effective system widely used for administrative and research purposes. Unfortunately, the formal name of this register "The Civil Registration System" may be confused with the same term as usually applied to the system for the
registration of vital events.
The technical paper was published in 1996 (#66) by IIVRS.
