Norway Life


The population of Norway is ethnically homogenous. Apart from several thousand Saami and people of Finnish origin in North Norway, the country has no other significant minority groups, although small numbers of Danes, Swedes, Britons, Pakistanis, Americans, and Iranians live in Norway.

Two forms of the Norwegian language are officially recognized as equal. The older form, Bokmål, is used by about 80 percent of children in schools; 20 percent use Nynorsk (Neo-Norwegian). Saami is spoken by the Saami people in the north. See Norwegian Language.

About 89 percent of the population belongs to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Norway, though many are nonpracticing members. The church is supported by the state, and the clergy is nominated by the king.
Complete religious freedom is guaranteed, however, and other churches, mostly Pentecostal and other Protestant congregations and Roman Catholic, represent most of the non-Lutheran population. Religious preferences tend to be nominal.
