Gender Statistics in Statistics Norway
To strengthen and improve gender statistics, Statistics Norway has established one unit inside the Division of Social Welfare Statistics that coordinates gender statistics. The coordinator also functions as a focal point for stakeholders and users of gender statistics. The coordinator edits the web page Focus on Gender Equality, is responsible for the annually publication Gender equality index for Norwegian municipalities, and edits the report on the Economic Distribution between Women and Men, published as an appendix to the Government's annual budget proposal.
Statistics Norway also has one of the largest research departments in Norway. The Division of Social and Demographic Research analyses a broad range of issues concerning gender equality.
