Population

All immigrants aged 15 - 74 years who are registered (under the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Organisation) as unemployed and settled in Norway. (The date of reference is the end of the second month in the quarter). Among the registered unemployed a smaller group of non-registered residents are included. Those people are settled abroad and are expected a stay in Norway lesser than six months.This group is not included among the immigrants, but is a part of the rest of the population.

Data sources and sampling

The Register of unemployed (under the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Organisation), the Central Population Register, Statistics Norway's Population statistics. In addition data from the Register of employees (also under the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Organisation ) are used as supporting data when calculating the labour force.

Total counting.

Collection of data, editing and estimations

Main figures concerning the whole population are compared to figures published by the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Organisation.

Immigrants are distributed by region of birth based on individual information about their country of birth. Unemployed are calculated in per cent of the labour force and in relation to the population 15 - 74 years. The figures are compared to main figures concerning the whole Norwegian labour force or the population and the non-immigrant segments within them. Immigrants are also counted in accordance with time of residence and their county of residence. Persons participating on ordinary labour market schemes are calculated in per cent of the population only. When calculating the unemployment rate, the labour force figures from the Labour Force Survey are used. These figures are distributed at lower levels by means of supporting figures from the Register of Employees.
