Immigrants lead population growth

Norway as a whole had a modest 0.6 percent growth in population last year, but the immigrant segment increased by fully 4.9 percent according to new figures from Statistics Norway (SSB).

According to the SSB, Norway's immigrant population grew by 17,000 in 2004. There are 301,000 first generation immigrants in Norway, from 200 different nations.

A total of 72 percent of the immigrant population comes from non-Western nations. Non-Western immigrants more often marry someone from their own country while Western newcomers more frequently find a Norwegian mate.

A total of 64,000 children were born to foreign parents in Norway in 2004, with 38,000 of these being born to Asian parents.

Most children were born to couples where both parents were from Pakistan and Pakistanis are the largest immigrant group in Norway. Immigrants with a Western background often return to their land of origin after having children.

There are a roughly equal number of immigrant men and women, but gender representation varies greatly from country to country. There are far more women among Thai and Filipino immigrants (85 and 76 percent respectively), while Afghanistan, Great Britain and Iraq have the highest percentile of male immigrants, about 60 percent in all three cases.

:O

This is absolutely disgusting and completely unacceptable. I hold Norway's imbecilic leaders of the past decade responsible for this outrage and abomination. :angryfis:

(pretty good, huh? :cool: )

If I may, I'd like to bring up a question somewhat related to this.. We get a lot of asylum seekers who run from war, but would it not be any mans duty to defend his nation and not run like a coward to a free BMW with alumi rims, and "fet bass"? :rolleyes: Send them back so they can defend their nation or whatever... just get them out, quick!!

Preliminary figures from Statistics Norway show a large increase in population in Norway in 2010.

The forecasts show that there is a growth in population in 314 of the 430 municipalities in the country in 2010. There is also a growth in 96 of the 177 least central municipalities in the country, which is an increase of 7 compared to 2009. The most striking pattern is that immigration accounts for two thirds of the growth.

- Immigrants are a resource for Norway. I am looking forward that immigration generate benefits to the whole country from big cities to small communities, says Local Government and Regional Development Minister Liv Signe.

A population growth of 65 000 is the highest result ever recorded. This is 2700 higher than the previous peak year in 2008 and 5800 higher than in 2009. Barely one third of the increase is a result of the birth surplus, while slightly more than two-thirds come from migration surplus from abroad. A net immigration from abroad of 44 500 will be the highest ever recorded, 1,100 higher than in 2008. A birth excess of 20 500 will be about as big as last year.

Continuing growth in major populated areas

The highest population growth occurs in the major cities. Oslo grows by 12 600 persons, while Bergen and Trondheim has 4200 more residents. Settlements in Aust-Agder Arendal Lillesand also have high population growth. Several municipalities in Romerike in Akershus, Skedsmo Ullensaker, Gjerdrum and Eidsvoll grow much in percentage, while many municipalities in northern Norway as a percentage rather lose much of its population.
