New institutional sector classification
The Norwegian institutional sector classification was revised on 1 January 2012 in line with the international classification. This change entails a break in the statistics for the accounting statistics for financial corporations from March 2012.
As a result of the new classification, some enterprises that were previously classified as non-financial enterprises are now classified as financial enterprises. These enterprises are therefore no longer a part of the statistics of industry loans. The industry of professional and financial services is most affected, since many of the enterprises, which were previously classified as non-financial enterprises were also likely to be a part of the industry of professional and financial services.
After the revision, all housing cooperatives will be classified in the industry of real estate, renting and business activities, whereas some of the cooperatives were previously classified under other industries as well.

New industry classification
The industry classification in the financial statistics changed in May 2009 when Statistics Norway introduced a new version of the Norwegian industry classification, SIC2009 . This leads to a more detailed classification and enables us to better analyse the development in important industries. However, the change also made comparisons of industrial loans before and after May 2009 difficult for some of the industries.
The statistics is now published as Banks and mortgage companies.
