    Reporting period: every three years

    Statistics Norway is now conduction the Norwegian part of the European student survey Eurostudent. In Eurostudent we map students living conditions during their lecture period in Norway. In the survey we ask students about the current study situation, monthly amount at their disposal, average monthly expenses, study-related costs per semester, international mobility, and time spent on work and studies.

    Eurostudent provides data for analysis and cross-country comparisons of students living conditions as well as data for national reports about students in Norway. A summary of Norwegian results can be found in the introduction to Student life and economic conditions, Reports 2015/50. The report itself is in Norwegian.

    For this survey a sample of 24 000 students are selected from a database of higher education in Norway. Those selected will receive email and text messages from SSB with a link to the survey.

    Living conditions among immigrants

    Reporting period: annually

    The purpose of the survey is to map important aspects of the lives of various immigrant groups in Norway today, as these groups are not sufficiently covered by Statistics Norway’s ordinary surveys on living conditions. Statistics Norway has previously conducted three surveys on living conditions among immigrants; in 1983, 1996 and 2005/2006. The composition of the immigrant population has changed considerably in recent decades and there is now a need to update our information through a new survey.
