No new municipalities have been created during 2015. Some basic statistical units have however been split up.
See standard classification of basic statistical units under the heading “additional information” for the details.
There are some minor changes in the figures for basic statistical units as well as for municipalities as a consequence of ongoing quality work by The Norwegian Mapping Authority. The mainland is now calculated to 323 781 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 choosing 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 choose one of the groups in the scroll menu below. Select the button “Select as single values” after choosing the required basic units. You can now go back to the tab called “My table” and proceed as usual.
