CPR stands for Det Centrale Personregister, which translates to the Civil Registration System. A CPR number may be a personal positive identification which, among other things, facilitates accurate linkage between all Danish national registers. Your CPR number consists of ten digits. the primary six digits are your date of birth, and therefore the last four are your unique positive identification. The last digit of your CPR number indicates your sex. If it’s an odd digit you’re male, and if it’s a fair digit you’re female. for instance, if your CPR number is 220550-6218, you were born on 22 May 1950 and you’re female.
