In 2018, the Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) introduced several changes that led to a break in the time series in the ARENA register, which is the statistical basis for registered unemployment among immigrants. The figures on registered unemployment among immigrants before and after the changes are therefore not directly comparable. The effects of the changes have not yet been examined and may vary between the different groups. Statistics Norway has therefore chosen not to comment on the changes in the figures in this publication.
