Satellite account for non-profit institutions, 2014

Volunteer work reaches nearly 148 000 full-time equivalents

Not counting volunteer work, non-profit institutions are estimated to have contributed NOK 53 billion, or 1.7 per cent, to the gross domestic product (GDP).

Children’s institutions, 2015

Increased number of children in care centers

Care centres for minors are part of the Child Welfare Services, and therefore included in these statistics. The large influx of refugees that came to Norway in autumn 2015 caused a significant growth in the number of unaccompanied minors in such care centres, from 112 in 2014 to 744 in 2015. Excluding the unaccompanied minors, the changes from 2014 to 2015 are small.

External trade in goods, September 2016, preliminary figures
