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.


Report on media development in Denmark (Ministry of Culture)

The Report on Media Development in Denmark provides detailed analyses of the Danish media landscape on an annual basis. Find information and extensive summaries in English at the web pages of the Danish Ministry of Culture. Link to the full reports in Danish.

As of 1 December 2020 the reporting on the media development in Denmark is transferred from the Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces to the Danish Ministry of Culture.
