About Nordic Statistics database

Nordic Statistics is a collection of comparative Nordic statistics which has existed and been funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers since the mid-1960s. The Nordic Statistics database contains about two hundred matrices and is presented at this website.

The aim of Nordic Statistics is to support the work of the Nordic governments and the Nordic region parliamentarians in creating joint solutions that benefit citizens in the Nordic countries.

The data is gathered from the Nordic Statistical Institutes (NSIs), the Nordic Health and Welfare Statistics database maintained by the Nomesco-Nososco committees, other Nordic statistics producers as well as international sources such as Eurostat, OECD and the UN.

The development and maintenance of Nordic Statistics is assigned to Statisticon. Updates and quality checks of the Nordic Statistics database is coordinated and performed by Statisticon in collaboration with the National Statistical Institutes in Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Finland, Åland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden as well as the Nomesco-Nososco committee and the Nordic Council of Ministers. Data is updated regularly over the year.
