Our main website are in Norwegian and offers more comprehensive media statistics than you will find here.
medianorway is a public information centre located at the University of Bergen and financed by the Ministry of Culture. We compile Norwegian media statistics from a number of different sources and publish the data on Internet. Our objective is to document media trends and development in Norway.
medianorway participates in a Nordic collaboration to produce comparative media statistics for the Nordic countries, coordinated by the knowledge centre NORDICOM in Sweden. The results from the collaboration are published on Nordicoms website and in the book series Nordic Media Trends, which can be ordered from the same website.
For an overview of the Norwegian media landscape, we can recommend the article Media Landscape: Norway, written by Helge Østbye for the European Journalism Centre. Helge Østbye is a professor of media studies at the University of Bergen.
