Many foreigners working in Denmark tinker with their home addresses to ensure a Danish social security (CPR) number. Foreigners often find themselves unemployed or in low-paying jobs, so they wind up living in places that do not meet the minimum standards – such as living in homes with too many people in too little space. They give authorities false addresses in order to get and keep their CPR numbers, which are required in order to maintain a Danish residency permit. Some estimate that more than half of all newcomers to Denmark are breaking the law by using bogus addresses. – Jyllands-Posten
