Population

The statistics comprises all the municipalities, county municipalities and the consolidated companies that own local government buildings. The municipalities have different characteristics in relation to their geographical structures and the number of inhabitants. More than half of the municipalities have less than 5 000 inhabitants, while only 12 municipalities have more than 50 000 inhabitants.

Data sources and sampling

Statistics are collected from two data source; KOSTRA questionnaires 34A, 34B, 34C, 34D and the individual municipalities accounting.

Comprises of all the municipalities, county municipalities and the consolidated companies that own local government buildings.

Collection of data, editing and estimations

Data is reported electronically to Statistics Norway by to methods. An online questionnaire is submitted as well as a file extract from the municipalities accounting systems.

The deadline for reporting of both the questionnaire and file extract is 15th Feb.

There are different controls and revision systems designed for the submission of both the electronic questionnaire and file extract.

Data from the questionnaire is controlled online and further checks is made once received.

The data containing the accounting figures is controlled online before submission to Statistics Norway with the help of an online control program designed to counter check the file-extract for any deviations. In case of any deviations, the file must be corrected by the respondents (municipalities) before it is finally accepted and registered. Additional checks are further carried out internally in Statistics Norway. These are checks to ensure that there are figures for important activities which have been assigned to the municipalities by legislation. In addition the figures are checked against figures from the previous year and against the corresponding municipality groups.

If large or many deviations are found, the respondent is contacted and asked to submit a new corrected questionnaire and/or corrected accounting report. Data for the previous year is published as part of KOSTRA (Municipality-State-Reporting) the following year on March 15th as preliminary figures. In addition the municipalities and county municipalities have a deadline the 15th of April to report their improved figures for the publication of audited figures 15th of June.

The data is published as key figures and basic figures. Basic figures are absolute figures.

Comparability over time and space

The reporting of the questionnaires 34A, 34B, 34C, 34D was carried out for the first time in 2009.

Accuracy and reliability

Sources of error and uncertainty

The controlling of the published preliminary figures March 15th, are only done by electronic controls. These controls do not find all the errors and there can be errors in the published preliminary figures March 15th. When publishing edited figures June 15th, controls are made by both Statistics Norway and the municipalities themselves. The publication gives very detailed information, and the controls done by Statistics Norway do not cover all details, so errors can still occur.

Questionnaires 34A, 34B, 34C, 34D has been reported for the first time by municipalities in 2009 (for accounting year 2008). The questionnaire is not without errors as the municipalities have no experience in the registration of the required data and also due to the absence of similar figures from the previous year.

Partial non-response occurs. The reporting of questionnaires 34A, 34B, 34C, 34D and municipality accounts is based on the principle of total counting, but there will always be considerable defections when Statistics Norway publishes preliminary figures March 15th. The audited figures published the 15th of June by KOSTRA, are figures controlled by the municipalities themselves and Statistics Norway.

Publication of audited figures 15th of June produce some defections but considerable less than publication of the preliminary figures. In the publication of 15th March the defection rate can be about 30 per cent, but in June the defection rate is normally less than 5 per cent.

The statistics is based on the principle of total counting.
