Norwegians spent NOK 12.8 billion on cross border trade on day trips in the last four quarters. This is an 8 per cent decrease compared with the previous four-quarter period.
|The previous four-quater period||The last four-quater period||Per cent|
|Cross Border Trade (NOK million)||13 915||12 781||-8.1|
|Number of daytrips (1 000)||7 904||7 367||-6.8|
The number of day trips was 7.4 million. This is a 7 per cent decrease compared with the previous four-quarter period.
The uncertainty in absolute figures (NOK) of the sum of four quarters is double that of the uncertainty for a quarter. However, the uncertainty is halved when we calculate the four quarters as a percentage.
Norwegians spent NOK 14.1 million in cross border trade in 2015. It is 95 per cent certain that the real figure of cross border trade was between NOK 13.6 billion and NOK 14.6 billion in 2015.
Cross border trade is a sample survey. The uncertainty of the quarterly cross border trade is quite extensive, at about NOK 0.5 billion. This means that if the total cross border trade in a quarter is NOK 3.5 billion, there is 95 per cent certainty that the real figure is between NOK 3 and 4 billion. Comparing two quarters is not certain and we try not to do this.
