The Movements Register (danish title: Bevægelsesregisteret) gives details of trained healthcare professionals in the workforce.  The details include a whole range of information about 31 different groups of professionals by way of age, gender, education/training country, branches, sectors and working regions.

The Danish Health Data Authority regularly releases figures giving different details of the health service employment market. The figures show where and in which roles trained healthcare professionals have been employed. In addition to those with jobs, the figures also include the unemployed and people on labour market/maternity or sick leave benefits. The figures also include people who are not listed in the social security register at report date, i.e. non-residents in the workforce.

The register is run by the Danish Health Data Authority and was created by cross-batching data from several registers. The basic data comes from a Danish Health Data Authority's Statistical Authorisation Register which holds information about individuals with professional healthcare training who have been authorised by the Danish Patient Safety Authority. This data is also supplemented with educational /training and labour market data from Statistics Denmark.
