Who needs help from the Child Welfare Services? Any change over time? Or geography? What about their social background?
The February data upload to microdata.no includes child welfare and 18 new income variables, among them public and private agreement based pension.
The data on child welfare show who has received child welfare services, which services and from which municipality, covering the period from 1993 to 2018. The variables may be merged with all the other data on the platform, giving you the opportunity to check for a number of characteristics of the children and their parents. You may also track the persons over time and investigate future consequences of the welfare measures.
More data on income
In addition, the February data increase comprises a number of income variables, among them data on agreement based pension, business income and household income. The variables contain figures up to and including 2018 – the newest data available at present. Microdata.no now contains 59 variables on income.
From 2006, sickness benefits and maternity benefits are not counted as work-related income in Statistics Norway’s official statistics, but as government transfers. Microdata.no therefore offers an extra set of income variables that reflect this: The new variables for salary, occupational income and business income do not include sickness benefits and maternity benefits. This is instead added as transfers and included in the two new transfer variables. See the table of income variables below for which it applies.

After the extension, the total number of variables on the platform as of 15 February is 235, all up to date with the latest available figures.
