According to Their Official Sources (Aaron Swartz):-
The snapshot was obtained during the summer of 2011 by systematically harvesting data from the public parts of the cvr.dk website.
The included fields are as follows:
CVR: CVR-number (8-digit unique id, last digit is a checksum)
Corporation Type: Integer denoting type of company, eg. ΓΓé¼┼ô10 EnkeltmandsvirksomhedΓΓé¼┬¥ (Sole Proprietorship)
Incorporated: Date of registration
Dissolved: Date of dissolution, if dissolved
There are approximately 1,000,000 companies in the dataset. CVR reports 550,000 companies in existence, but that is likely not including the dissolved ones.
This data is made freely available because it is wrong for the Danish government to require citizens to provide data for government databases, then use taxpayer money to gather, collate and store that data, only to ask citizens to pay if they want access to that same information from the the government.
