The Norwegian Citizen Panel
The Norwegian Citizen Panel is a core component of DIGSSCORE.
The Norwegian Citizen Panel was established in 2013, as a collaboration by The Department of Comparative Politics, The Department of Administration and Organization Theory, The Department of Information Science and Media Studies and The Department of Sociology, all at the Social Science Faculty at the University of Bergen, in addition to NORCE. From 2016 - 2020 DIGSSCORE and the Norwegian Citizen Panel was largely financed by the Trond Mohn Foundation, while from 2021 the University of Bergen finances the Citizen Panel, along with the different research projects collecting data in the NCP.
The Norwegian Citizen Panel cooperates with Ideas2Evidence in regards to the operation of the survey. Ideas2Evidence is responsible for recruiting participants, coding the survey and fielding it. The panel is also followed up by internal support functions of the University of Bergen, mainly at DIGSSCORE. For information about the methodology, go to the DIGSSCORE-pages.
The Norwegian Citizen Panel is a research-purpose internet panel with over 10 000 active participants. It is based on a probability sample of the general Norwegian population above the age of 18 drawn from the Norwegian National Registry. Panel members complete an online questionnaire three times a year of 15 minutes each.
