Annually Norway sends a report to the OECD – Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. The report 'Immigration and Integration 2017–2018 – Report for Norway to the OECD' is a contribution to the reporting system on migration for the OECD countries.
The most recent report covers 2017 and to some extent 2018. It was prepared during the autumn of 2018 by the Ministry of Justice and Public Security in cooperation with the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, the Ministry of Education and Research, the Ministry of Children and Equality, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It is mainly based on data from Statistics Norway and the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration and contains statistics on migration, on the composition of immigrants and their Norwegian-born children and on integration indicators in various social areas.
It also presents an overview of immigration and integration policy principles and measures. The report covers the major types of immigration, integration in general, training, education, labour market issues, political participation, child welfare, discrimination, citizenship, public debate and opinion, migration and development. It also lists some new, relevant publications that are available in English or contain a summary in English.
The report for Norway and similar reports for the other member countries are used as important input for the annual publication from the OECD, International Migration Outlook. See the OECD website on migration
