Main content

When recruiting to the panel we welcome all elected representatives in Norway, from bydelsstyre to Storting and Sameting. We invite them by mail and email. The panel currently consists of about 2500 active participants.

After each wave, a dataset, codebook and a methodology report is produced with information about participation, representativity, time use, etc. More information on the waves of the Norwegian Panel of Elected Representatives (including citation requirements, methodology reports and codebooks) can be found by clicking the links below for the waves you are interested in.

To use the data, you must apply to digsscore@uib.no. They can be accessible through the safe research data system at the University of Bergen, for use in research and teaching. Data are aggregated on some key indicators, so the participants will not be identifiable.

Note on ethics and data protection.
