For many immigrants SSB has no information about their level of education. For 2014 and newer years figures includes an estimated level of education for missing values for these immigrants on the highest level of education (level 1). For more information see About the statistics.

The numbers of registered unemployed by education must not be mistaken with NAV's unemployment figures for education. NAV figures show self-reported highest commenced education. SSB's figures show the person's highest completed education mainly based on reports from education institutions. For more information, see About the statistics.

The tables are updated only once a year as of 2015. Statistics Month in November.

Dotting All numbers with value one or two in the table are dotted. In addition, secondary dotting has been done when necessary. Dotting is done to safeguard personal protection.
There is a break in the time series on registered unemployed from 2018, so the figures are not directly comparable with previous years. For more information about the break, see: About the statistics.
