About the Nordic media statistics
Nordicom monitors developments in the media sectors of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden from a comparative perspective, with the purpose of documenting trends and changes in the Nordic media landscape.
A great deal of Nordic data is contributed by The Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces, Statistics Finland, Statistics Iceland, medianorway and Nordicom-Sweden. These institutions all produce national statistics on the media and are invaluable sources in the collection of Nordic data (see further below). Other Nordic data are collected directly from national prime sources.
Nordicom also monitors media development in Europe and internationally so as to place Nordic media sectors in a broader context. Data emanate from sources such as Eurostat, the Eurobarometer, UNESCO, ITU, etc.
