Norway — Labour market remains stable

03 February 2010

According to the latest Labour Force Survey, published today by Statistics Norway (SSB), seasonally-adjusted unemployment increased by 2,000 persons from August (as measured by the average of the months from July to September), to November (as measured by the average of the months from October to December).

The unemployment rate of October was revised up from 3.2% to 3.3%.


Seasonally-adjusted figures for those registered unemployed with the Labour and Welfare Organisation (NAV) rose by about 1,000. Including persons on government initiatives to promote employment there was a total increase of 4,000. These figures have also been adjusted for seasonal variations.

After a considerable period of decline, the employment level remained stable from August to November. Adjusted for seasonal variations, the Labour Force Survey (LFS) shows no significant change from August (as measured by the average of the months from July to September) to November (as measured by the average of the months from October to December).
