Volume measures of education in the Norwegian National Accounts


Education in norwegian national accounts l.jpg

Education in Norwegian National Accounts

Four industries in NACE education:

  • Local government educational services

  • Central government educational services

  • Private NPISH

  • Private educational services, market producers


Data sources for education l.jpg

Data sources for education

  • Primary and lower secondary education

    • The information system for primary and lower secondary education (GSI – Grunnskolenes informasjonssystem)

    • KOSTRA "Municipality-State-Reporting ”

  • Upper secondary education

    • KOSTRA "Municipality-State-Reporting ”

  • Tertiary education

    • The database for statistics on higher education (DBH)

  • Adult education

    • The information system for primary and lower secondary education


Primary and lower secondary education l.jpg

Primary and lower secondary education

  • Education is given in ordinary and special schools. Costs per pupil are much higher in special schools.

  • The volume indicator is the number of pupil hours

    • number of hours spent at being thought

  • The volume indicator is weighted by the adjusted gross operating expenditure from the previous year


Upper secondary education l.jpg

Upper secondary education

  • General theoretical education and vocational training divided into 15 courses

  • For education provided by the county authorities volume measures are based on full year equivalents for each course

    • a convertion of the number of pupils in proportion to the share of the course they are attending

    • weighted by the adjusted gross operating expenditure at course level from the previous year

  • Volume indices for central government and private NPISH are based on number of pupils


Tertiary education l.jpg

Tertiary education

  • Tertiary education consists of courses at universities and university colleges.

  • Number of students by institution are used as volume indicator. Each universitity is further stratified by groups of faculties according to unit costs.

  • For universities and state university colleges cost data on institution and faculty level are available and used to weight the volume indicator.


Adult education l.jpg

Adult education

  • Volume indicies are based on teacher hours

    • the total amount of teaching hours offered by the teachers during one school year

  • We assume the same volume growth for market producers and NPISH due to lack of data

  • Production in current prices is dominated by the local government and market producers (adult education associations)


Aggregated volume indicies by industry l.jpg

Aggregated volume indicies by industry

  • In 2003 output method gives lower volume growth in all industries except for NPISH

  • In 2004 output method gives higher volume growth in local goverment and for the market producers


Concluding remarks l.jpg

Concluding remarks

  • Further evaluation of our calculation methods and data sources

  • Statistics Norway is developing detailed account statistics for NPISH providing educational services

  • In the longer term introduce quality adjustment in the calculations of the volume indicators
