Regional income in Norway, 1900–2010

ByJørgen Modalsli

Norway has experienced substantial economic growth since the early twentieth century. However, until now, no consistent calculation has been made of how the gains from economic growth have been allocated across the country. This article presents, for the first time, a unified estimate of ‘gross regional product’ from 1900 to 2010, based on existing GDP estimates, census data and contemporary income tabulations.
