Please notice corrections have been made in the web version (see list of corrections). Nordic Statistical Yearbook 2007 is published for the 45th time. It is a reference book containing comprehensive and easily accessible statistics of various aspects of social life in the five Nordic countries, i.e. Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. In addition data are also presented on the selfgoverning regions, i.e. the Faroe Islands, Greenland and the Åland Islands. The aim of the yearbook is, as far as possible, to present comparable data on the Nordic countries. Additional tables on CDROM supplement the Nordic Statistical Yearbook. Observera att nätversionen innehåller korrigeringar (se rättelseblad). Nordisk statistisk årsbok utkommer nu för 45:e gången. Årsboken är en uppslagsbok, som avser vara en sammanfattande och överskådlig redovisning av statistik över samhällsförhållandena i de fem nordiska länderna Danmark, Finland, Island, Norge och Sverige. I många av tabellerna redovisas också uppgifter om de självstyrande områdena Färöarna, Grönland och Åland. Syftet med årsboken är att lägga fram sinsemellan jämförbara uppgifter om de nordiska länderna. Ytterligare tabeller finns på den CDROM som medföljer Nordisk statistisk årsbok 2007.



Housing and consumption

In the Nordic countries, the shift from rural to urban society began in the early part of the 20th century along with the industrial revolution. At present, the population of the Nordic countries is largely urbanized. The share of one- and two-family houses out of the entire building stock is highest in Denmark and Åland with almost 60 per cent in Denmark and almost 70 per cent in Åland and lowest in Sweden with 45 per cent. Private ownership of such dwellings, whether a house or an apartment, is common. (Achieving comparable statistics on housing is complicated by differences in registration practices among the countries).
