Gain access to Statistics Denmarks’ registers – a unique possibility

Statistics Denmark's extensive collection of register data, with data collected from the 70s to the present, contains a very substantial research potential with almost infinite possibilities. To explore this potential in agreement with the data regulations, requests should be addressed to the Division of Research Services.

Only Danish research environments are granted authorisation. Foreign researchers can, however, get access to micro data through an affiliation to a Danish authorised environment. Access is given to anonymised micro data, i.e. data at an individual personal or corporate level. Access takes place through researcher’s own pc over the Internet.

Data from other sources can also be linked to data from Statistics Denmark, e.g. researcher’s own data collections or data from other administrative registers. Data from external sources requires approval from The Danish Data Protection Agency.
