What is a CPR-number?

CPR stands for "Central Person Register", a system that assigns each resident in Denmark with a unique ID called the CPR-number. Almost all public authorities use the CPR registry, e.g. to avoid duplicate registration and errors with regards to a person's identity. The private sector will often ask for your CPR number, for instance when you want to open a bank account.
