The census has been conducted since 1937, but changes in municipal and county compositions makes comparisons over time difficult.

Comparability over time

In 2007 a new local government reform came into power. Many municipalities were merged and some municipalities were split between several new municipalities. This means that there are now 98 municipalities compared with 270 before the reform. The counties were abolished and 5 regions came instead. The regions can, in contrast to the former counties, nor levy taxes.

There have been no changes in the municipal division from 1975 to 2002. In 2003 Bornholm County and its municipalities merged into a regional municipality on par with Copenhagen and Frederiksberg. The municipalities handled both county and municipal tasks. In 2006 Marstal and Ærøskøbing Municipalities merged into Ærø Municipality.
