Economic, social and contextual data

The 'Project database NCRR / CIRRAU' contains economic, social and contextual data from the registers of Statistics Denmark for the years 1980 and onwards or whenever data are available in specific registers.

These data may be extracted for defined study populations and placed in separate projects on one of the CIRRAU servers.

CIRRAU’s data managers set up documentation for all these variables in Danish and English. Links to this documentation, as well as detailed documentation for key variables (UK), may be found in the box below.

NOTE: If you need data from the Register of Medicinal Product Statistics, you apply for them through Sundhedsdatastyrelsen!

You may also look up documentation for the data on Statistics Denmark's homepage: "Højkvalitetsdokumentation" and "Registeroversigt" (DK).

Data in the CIRRAU database from DST (incl. DREAM, LMDB and LPR)



CIRRAU has geocoded Danish addresses for the entire Danish population. Data are available from 1968 onwards, with high quality data available from 1978.

99.34% of the Danish addresses were geocoded. The main reasons for incomplete data are closed down streets / roads and missing information in the Danish Civil Registration System (CPR).
