2007 - a good year for self-employed

Entrepreneurial income for self-employed in non-primary industries amounted to almost NOK 460 000 on average in 2007. This is an increase of 9 per cent from the previous year.

About the statistics

The tables include information about 330 218 self-employed persons. A self-employed person is a person who conducts business at his or her own risk. Married couples conducting a business together are counted as two self-employed, even though they share the taxable entrepreneurial income. One self-employed can run more than one business. The persons are classified by whether their main incomes come from business or wages and pensions. More than half of the self-employed received their main income from wages and pensions in 2007.
