The large numbers of those who emigrated from Norway bring to our attention the extreme example of the mass emigration phenomenon. Emigration from Norway had early beginnings. Between 1836 and the time of the First World War 775,000 emigrants left Norway; this from a population of 1.1 million in 1850 which increased to just 2.2 million by the turn of the century. The analysis of Norway provides a comparison to the previous analysis of Sweden. Most of the variables used here have their direct analogue to the Swedish case and provide a comparable test of the expectations of this study. In the Norwegian analysis a longer period of time will be investigated, as well as a more diverse set of variables.
