Overall satisfactory tap water

In 2016, around 99 per cent of inhabitants connected to municipal waterworks were supplied with acceptable drinking water in terms of content of thermo-tolerant intestinal bacteria (E. coli). This level is the same as previous years. Around one-third of the water is estimated to be “lost” through leakage on its ways from the waterworks to the consumers.

Sharp rise in job insecurity for among oil workers

The proportion of employed persons who believe they are at risk of losing their job and who have experienced changes in the workplace has increased slightly over the last three years. The oil industry, however, has seen a sharp increase.

Local authorities in Norway spent on average 3.9 per cent of their net operating expenditure on cultural purposes in 2016. This represents an increase of NOK 100 per capita compared to the 2015 figures.

Interim seasonally adjusted quarterly national accounts figures (QNA) show an upswing in economic growth in the first quarter of 2017. Mainland GDP increased by an annualised 2.6 per cent, which is higher than estimated trend growth of 2 per cent. It is still too early to be certain that this represents an economic turnaround following the slump in the wake of the fall in oil prices in the second half of 2014, but our projections indicate that this is the case.
