The statistics includes employees in the Ministries, the Office of the Prime Minister, the Courts of Justice, and the Sami Parliament, including subordinate units. Compared with Statistics Norway's definition of the Central Government, the biggest exception is that the Hospital Trusts are not included. The number of employees is counted from the Register Based Employment Statistics in Statistics Norway, where the reference period is the third week of November. Includes employees 15 years of age or older, both residents and non-residents (short-term stays). Residents are people who are expected to stay in Norway for at least six months. The most important data source is the NAV Register of Employees. Employees that according to NAV are contractors are not included. The Ministry of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs and the Ministry of Trade and Industry were abolished as of 1 January 2014. From the same point of time the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development had it s name changed to the Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation, the Ministry of the Environment to the Ministry of the Environment to the Ministry of Climate and Environment and the Ministry of Labour to the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. At the same time a Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries Affairs was established. As from 2015, the statistics are based on new data sources (a-ordningen), see further details in «About the statistics». The total number of employed persons is no longer coordinated with the Labour Force Survey (LFS) as before 2015, and does not correspond any more with LFS's total number of employed. The figures for 2015 and onwards are therefore not comparable with the figures for previous years.
