Members of the Church of Norway (number)

Up to and including 2020 the variable included members of the Church of Norway as well as not baptized child (until 18 year) of a parent who is a member. From 2021 the variable only includes members of the Church of Norway.

Resigned from the Church of Norway (number)

The Church of Norway adopted a new digital tool to enroll and resign in 2016. This led to high figures for resigned in 2016.

Infants baptized (number)

Starting in 2016, new basic figures were introduced for the number of baptized. Earlier figures for baptized are published as ' acts of baptisms in the parish '. For 2015 numbers are therefore 'baptized' and ' acts of baptisms in the parish' the same, while for 2016 numbers and so forth, both variables are published. Earlier baptized figures included acts of baptisms in the parish aggregated to municipal level and further to country numbers, while new baptismal numbers include baptized in the parish aggregated. Proportion of baptized by the number born on the national level is somewhat lower, 55.3 percent, than it would have been after the old definition, 55.9 percent for 2016 numbers.

For 2015 numbers are therefore 'baptized' and ' acts of baptisms in the parish' the same, while for 2016 numbers and so forth, both variables are published. Earlier baptized figures included acts of baptisms in the parish aggregated to municipal level and further to country numbers, while new baptismal numbers include baptized in the parish aggregated. Proportion of baptized by the number born on the national level is somewhat lower, 55.3 percent, than it would have been after the old definition, 55.9 percent for 2016 numbers.

Participants in church services total (number)

For 2020, 'Participants in church services total' is the sum of the number of participants in church services (already existing field) plus number of streamed participants registered on KOSTRA church form (new field due to corona). It is only for 'Participants in church services total' streamed participants are included. Therefore, the sum of 'Participants in church sundays and holidays' and 'Participants in church services except sundays and holidays' is less than 'Participants in church services total'.

Easter services, participants (number)

From 2013, this field includes all church services at Easter, from Maundy Thursday through 2. Easter day.

Participants in choirs for adults/family choirs (number)

For 2010, the number of members in adult and children's choir was merged in the variable 'number of children and youth'.

Number of children who received 4-year book (number)

From 2015, data is obtained from the Church Council on the basis of reporting for religious education.
