The figures are break adjusted for the break in 2021, but not for the one in 2006. Therefore, only the time period from 2006 to 2020 is break adjusted. The figures are break adjusted to the level after the 2021 break. Man-weeks worked is not break adjusted due to problems inseparating the possible effect of the corona crisis from the effect of the restructuring of the LFS. See About the statistics for more information.

These figures are the quarterly averages of seasonally adjusted monthly figures, and correspond to figures of 3-months moving average in StatBank table 13760 for the middle month of the quarter. Before 2006 the target population was persons aged 16-74 with permanent residence in Norway.
