Norway is a small country in Northern Europe with a population of about 4.6 million inhabitants. The average GDP per capita is very high, meaning that the living standard in Norway is very high. This means that despite of the small size, Norway is a quite large economic power. This is also reached through a very high economic activity rate and a quite low unemployment rate.

The life expectancy is very high in Norway. This may be caused by the excellent drinking water conditions and the low HIV rate. On the other hand, the greenhouse gas emissions on a per capita basis are quite high. The school life expectancy is very long in Norway and also the tertiary education enrolment ratio is very high.
