Public and private ports with a total cargo of less than 1 million tonnes are not included in the quarterly statistics but are included in a yearly statistics. The statistics do not include fishing catching vessels and special types of vessels such as towing vessels, research/seismic vessels and drilling vessels.

The numbers of port call does not include domestic ferries and passenger boats. The distribution between domestic and foreign traffic in port calls are based on where the vessel are coming from.

The table on the Coastal Liner between Bergen and Kirkenes include only passengers.

Change in the reporting from the Coastal Liner from 2013.

Data sources and sampling

Public and private ports with a total cargo of more than one millions tonnes.

The numbers on the Coastal Liner are sent from Hurtigruten Group ASA

See 3.1

Collection of data, editing and estimations

The information is colleted automatically from the ports administrative system (PORTwin), and send to Statistics Norway by  secure web portal for reporting of data. 

Mathematical and logic controls are used to check for recording errors or other obvious errors in data. The data are checked against reports for last year. The respondent is contacted in the event of partial non-response or other significant errors.

When a port fail to deliver data in sufficient time before publishing, estimation of the data will be done. The estimated amount of cargo is based on the development to the other ports from last quarter.
