The survey is carried out by way of a nationwide panel which is equipped with electronic measuring apparatuses that recognise all radio transmissions from the participating radio channels. Only radio channels taking part in the survey is monitored, and results may vary depending on the number of channels participating.
Local radio channels have been represented mainly by commercial radio chains. In 2014 the survey was extended with several digital NRK channels (DAB) and more DAB channels were included the following years. 2018 onwards only nationwide DAB and online channels are included in the survey. These changes affect both total radio listening and market shares.
