Data is collected every 3-4 years from Statistics Norway's survey of level of living. A nationally representative sample of 10 000 individuals is drawn, with around 7 000 completing the survey via a personal or telephone interview. Survey participants are required to assess their own health, illness, disability, living habits and utility of health services. People living in institutions are not included. Each survey provides an indication of the population's health at a given point in time (cross-sectional survey). Repition of the survey provides an indication of developments in health over time. Nationally representative data.

Data quality

The health survey is a stable and regular source of data about different aspects of the population's health. In recent years, the survey has had a stable participation rate of around 60%, which is good compared with other health surveys in Norway. The exclusion of people living in institutions most likely leads to an underrepresentation of the elderly population in Norway.
