A new standard for industrial classification (SIC2007) was introduced in 2008. Even though industry is not included in this table, the figures are somewhat influenced by the change. Therefore, there is a break in the series between 2007 and 2008. From the 1st quarter of 2015, the statistics on sickness absence is based on a new data source, A-ordningen. Therefore, there is a break in the series between 2014 and 2015.


See list over changes in regional classifications (in Norwegian).

Tables that use the new regional division also for the years before 2024.
