Norhealth is a Norwegian health information system which presents key statistics on health and the prevalence of diseases and risk factors in the Norwegian population, and also some background population statistics. Data are collected from several national health registers and surveys and are presented at the national and regional level.
Norhealth contains more than 100 indicators. Within each indicator, you can create your own tables, figures and maps by using the menus and icons at the top of the page.
The indicators are categorised into several groups:
- About population
- Living conditions
- Living habits
- Health and disease
- Social Inequalities in Health
Norway is in a unique position with many good quality health registries. Data from these are collected, along with information from Statistics Norway and Norwegian health studies, into the online municipal statistics bank and the Norhealth statistics bank. The Norwegian Institute of Public Health has produced a range of fact sheets that use the Norhealth statistics bank as a source of interactive diagrams and tables.
