The municipalities Andebu and the main part of Stokke have been merged with Sandefjord municipality. A smaller part of Stokke has been merged with Tønsberg municipality. The municipalities are situated in Vestfold county. In addition, there have been some changes in the numbering of basic statistical units in Oslo.
There are some minor changes in the figures for basic statistical units as well as for municipalities as a consequence of ongoing quality work and updating of topographical maps by The Norwegian Mapping Authority. The mainland is now calculated to 323 804 km2.
If you want to get the figures for each single basic unit, or all the basic units, this has to be done in several steps. After having chosen the right table, you should select the tab called “Select via groups”, then select the option “region” in the scroll menu called “Select variable”, and chose one of the groups in the scroll menu below. Select the button “Select as single values” after having chosen the required basic units. You can now go back to the tab called “My table” and proceed as usual. You may also use API for extracting data from Statbank.
