Offences investigated2014

With the upcoming release on 6 March 2017, Statistics Norway’s crime statistics will entail changes in the classification of offences. Following the new Norwegian penal code which came into effect on 1 October 2015, the raw data files from the police registers have been changed, thus Statistics Norway has developed a new version of Standard for types of offences: Type of offence 2015. The new way of grouping offences will cause certain time breaks in the statistics. The new classification of offences is available (without figures until 6 March) in the existing tables for offences investigated in the StatBank.
