The Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by the UN member states in 2015 and consist of 17 goals and 169 targets as a joint plan up to 2030 that address the global challenges related to the environmental, economic and social developments (A/RES/70/1). This fact page shows the developments for Norway within selected indicators that are determined at the global level for monitoring the Sustainable Development Goals.

There is no official definition of poverty in Norway. This must be illustrated indirectly by means of related indicators. The proportion of people with persistent low incomes is one such indirect indicator that indicates the proportion of the population living in households with relatively low incomes over time. It does not have to mean that they are poor, but rather that they have an increased risk of poverty. For more information, see the metadata document at the bottom of the page.

This is a ratio between urban growth and population growth. If the number is 1 then the urban area growth is as large as the population growth.

If above 1, the area growth is greater than the population growth (this can be interpreted as undesirable development). If below 1, then the area growth is less than the population growth (this can be interpreted as a desired development).
