Welcome to Medianorway

On this website you can find facts and figures about media in Norway, published by the information service Medianorway.

Medianorway is a public information centre located at the University of Bergen. 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 in news letters and under media statistics.
