Using Register Data to Monitor the Immigration and Emigration of Immigrants

Vebjørn Aalandslid [email protected]

Statistics Norway


Data: The CPR as a main source for population and social statistics in Norway

  • Central Register of Population (CPR) established in 1964 – based on the Population Census of 1960 + local registers already established in 1946

  • Established for administrative - not statistical – purposes

  • The pin-code essential in linking all the various registers based on this system

  • All national administrative registers that are based on individuals use the pin-code.

  • A comprehensive register society. “All” governmental agencies and a lot of private firms have limited access to these register data - more than 1500 in total.

  • Cooperation between governmental agencies

Quality of data

  • Work in progress on estimating the number of illegal immigrants

  • Unregistered emigration probably a bigger problem than illegal/unregistered immigration
