Societal of effects error and omission in the municipal registration system

This report focuses on the impact of error and omission in the Municipal Personal Records Database (GBA) in the Netherlands. The authors show a range of financial, administrative and communal effects that can be related to the fact that citizens are registered in official records on faulty addresses or to the fact that they are not registered at all. The impact of such errors or omissions in the electronic personal records databases of the government is especially distressing in cases where legal rights or obligations are based on address or family circumstances. Obvious financial effects are seen in social security or fiscal regulation. A study by Considerati and ID Management Center, commisioned by the Netherlands Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (Van der Veen, Ruiter, Schermer, Van der Heide – 2013)
