Immigration and Immigrants 2015–2016

IMO Report for Norway

Report from Norway to the OECD with statistics on migration and on the composition of immigrants and their Norwegian-born children.

Annually Norway sends a report to the OECD – Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. The report ”Immigration and Immigrants 2015–2016 – IMO Report for Norway” is a contribution to the reporting system on migration for the OECD countries.

The most recent report covers 2015 and to some extent 2016. It was prepared during the autumn of 2016 by the Ministry of Justice and Public Security in cooperation with the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, the Ministry of Education and Research and the Ministry of Children and Equality. It is mainly based on figures from Statistics Norway and the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration and contains statistics on migration and on the composition of immigrants and their Norwegian-born children.

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. It also lists some relevant new publications in English or with a summary in English.

The report for Norway and similar reports from 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.
