Faroe Islands and Greenland 2008

Media and Communication Statistics

When we speak of the Nordic region, more often than not we are referring to Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. But the region also includes the Faroe Islands and Greenland to the west. The West-Nordic economies and polities are quite different, both from each other and from the eastern Nordic countries. The populations are small and relatively young; distances are vast; climatic conditions are challenging. All these factors have formed vital and distinctive local cultures. This volume, Media and Communication Statistics. Faroe Islands and Greenland 2008, examines trends of the media in both countries since in 1980 until today offering detailed statistics on a wide range of media - newspapers, periodicals, books and public libraries, radio, television, video, film and cinema, phonograms, telephone, PC and the Internet, and government subsidises to the media and aspects like supply, distribution, contents and consumption.

This publication is available in both a printed version and a PDF. The PDF version is free of cost.
