Nordic statistical network

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 Nordicom's statistical network, a number of institutions who all produce national media statistics and provide national data and analysis in online databases and reports.
