Enjoys school (NHC)


Number of pupils who enjoy school, as a percentage of all respondents in the student survey. The county figures comprise students who attend school in the county.

To change the table, open "change selection of...".
Two measures are available. Use the Measure button to select:
1. per cent = Percentage.
2. ratio (Norway = 100) = Ratio between the county's rate and the national rate for a given year. Examples; ratio = 130 means that the county's rate is 30% higher than the national level. A ratio of 87 means that the county's rate is 13% lower than the national level.

Rationale for indicator
Well-being is an important parameter for public health work.
The Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training
Data from the School Survey which is conducted annually in 7th and 10th grade.
Interpretation and sources of error
Random factors that may affect results are of greater importance if the selection is small. Results from groups with few pupils must therefore be interpreted with more caution than results based on the entire sample for the survey.

Comparison of results over time is central to working on quality in education.
Data quality
In recent years, the response rate in the student survey has varied between 80% and 90%.
When numbers are missing
Statistics based on fewer than three cases are hidden for privacy reasons. In practice, numbers are concealed if the following is true:

• Fewer than three who enjoy school or fewer than three who do not.
• Fewer than 10 people in the denominator.

In addition, statistics for a subset are concealed, e.g. a gender, if the figure for this subgroup, with the figure for the group, could be used to derive a number that is hidden for privacy reasons.

If more than 20 per cent of the numbers in a time series are hidden for privacy reasons, the entire time series is concealed so as not to create a false impression of the situation in the county. Time series are also hidden where more than 50 per cent of the numbers in the time series are based on 6 or fewer cases.
Time periods
