About the statistics

The account statistics for private kindergartens presents detailed information about the activities in this sector on the basis of financial information.

Definitions

Definitions of the main concepts and variables

Kindergarten

According to the Day Care institutions act of 1995, kindergarten is defined as approved educational activities organized for children below the age when compulsory education starts.

A family day-care centres is a kindergarten that organizes its activities in a private home, based on the premise that a kindergarten teacher is employed as an educational supervisor. The kindergarten teacher should either be attached to a normal kindergarten or the municipal administration. The regulation on family day-care centres states that at least half of the children in a family day-care institution group must be other than the home's own children.

Open kindergartens do not have a particular group of children. They are open to children accompanied by parents for playing and social gathering. The estimated number of children attending open kindergartens refers to the number of children who can visit the kindergarten at the same time. Open kindergartens are approved according to the Day Care Institutions Act, hence the kindergartens must be directed by an approved pre-school teacher, and meet other requirements set by the Ministry of Education and Research.

Mixed kindergartens are a mix of ordinary kindergartens and family day-care centres.

Operation income includes parental payments, sale/hiring out place, sale of equipment, state subsidy, municipal subsidy, other municipal subsidy, and other incomes.

Operation expenses include salary, social charges, equipment, maintenance and other operation expenses.

Standard classifications

The Standard Industrial Classification (SN2002) used in Statistics Norway is based on the EU´s NACE-standard.

Background

Background and purpose

The account statistics for private kindergartens presents detailed information about the activities in this sector on the basis of financial information. The statistics provides important and necessary knowledge about the subsidies transferred to kindergartens from the government and municipalities, and information about how these resources are used.

The statistics were first published in 1992. In 2003 (accounting year 2002) a new questionnaire, Q 0257, was used. The present questionnaire allows Statistics Norway to publish more detailed statistics. Starting in 2008 a new web solution called BASIL was used for the data collection.

Users and applications

Users include public sector agencies, with Ministry of Education and Research and The Norwegian Directorate of Education and Training as the main user, private organisations, individuals, international organisations and media.

Equal treatment of users

No external users have access to the statistics and analyses before they are published and accessible simultaneously for all users on ssb.no at 10 am. Prior to this, a minimum of three months' advance notice is given inthe Statistics Release Calendar. This is one of Statistics Norway’s key principles for ensuring that all users are treated equally.

Coherence with other statistics

The account statistics for private kindergartens can be viewed in connection with other statistics in Statistics Norway, for example Children in kindergartens, Households payments in kindergartens, KOSTRA and Local governments accounts.

Legal authority

The information is collected by The Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training. Statistics Norway uses the reports to produce official statistics under the authority of the Statistics Act of 16 June 1989 No. 54 regarding official statistics and Statistics Norway article 2-2, cf. 3-2.

Production

Population

The statistics include all privately owned kindergartens (industry code 88.911) which has been in operation throughout the financial year.

Data sources and sampling

The statistics are based on a questionnaire from the BASIL database. The Register of Establishments and Enterprises at Statistics Norway is used to obtain necessary information about the population.

The statistics include the whole population of private kindergartens.

Collection of data, editing and estimations

The web solution presently in use for the data collection is called BASIL (BArnehage-Statistikk-InnrapporteringsLøsning). Username and password is sent out within three months after the end of the statistical year, with a respone deadline of four weeks.

Revisions and corrections are carried out on the information obtained from the sample population and the structural survey.

Seasonal adjustment

Not relevant

Confidentiality

The figures are neither published at institutional nor municipal level.

Comparability over time and space

The numbers of enterprises included in the statistics vary from year to year. This statistics show income and costs in private kindergartens, and do not give information about numbers of private kindergartens.

Accuracy and reliability

Sources of error and uncertainty

Returned questionnaires are registered into a database. The registration programme contains automatical controls, and questionnaires which fail to pass the controls are checked individually. Nevertheless, the results of a statistical survey may contain collection and processing errors.

The questionnaire is sent out to all none-municipal kindergartens in Norway. The response rate is not 100 percent, but normally over 90 percent. The statistics is therefore representative.
