Sampling Procedure

Census conducted in connection with municipal and county council elections. A stratified sample of almost 6 800 was taken from the population of Norwegian citizens with an immigrant background entitled to vote. One disproportional sample was selected from this group, with a certain number from the largest nationality groups and the remainder of the samples being distributed between the different continents. The nationality groups were ranked by size and divided as follows: The 10 largest groups, the 15 next largest groups, rest of Western Europe, rest of Eastern Europe, rest of Asia, rest of South America, rest of Africa, rest of America and rest of Oceania. The samples were thus: 250 persons drawn from countries ranked 1-10, 200 persons drawn from countries ranked 11-25, 150 persons drawn from the continent of Oceania and 200 persons drawn from each continent of the remainder.  Persons selected were grouped by municipality number and printouts of lists sent to the respective local authorities. Local authority election officials were sent details of persons selected, who according to the central register, were resident in the relevant municipality on 30 June. The election officials then check in the census to see whether these persons voted. An indication was then given on the list of whether they voted or not, and returned to Statistics Norway.

Mode of Data Collection

Paper/pencil questionnaire

Weighting

In order for all nationality groups to count proportionately to the share of the population they constituted, the figures needed to be weighted.  Total figures and figures for the continents were weighted. The weight for each group is s, whereby the weights can add up to the sample size. i.e. the inverse probability of being drawn for the group, multiplied by the samples share of the population. All persons have a weight that is proportional to the probability of being drawn. Figures can thus be published for all continents in addition to the 25 largest population groups.
