Attachments Summary
Hele rapporten

Between 1985 and 2009 Norway has seen a population growth of 17 per cent and a nearly 50 per cent growth in the number of private cars. Fewer people now live in sparsely populated areas, and personal income increased significantly. Employment has increased to 2.5 million, and the share of people with a university degree has reached 26 per cent. During the period under study, distance travelled daily increased from 34 to 42 kms and the share of drivers from 46 to 52 per cent, while cycling and walking decreased from 31 to 26 percent. Travel by public transport remained static throughout the entire period, at 10 per cent, and the number of trips remained unchanged at about three per day.
