Unemployment increased by 83% from November 2019 to November 2020. The increase was most significant among those with a short university education.

In November 2019, there were 8,316 registered unemployed workers in Norway with up to four years of university or college education. 

One year later, the unemployment in this group rose to 17,025. That corresponds to an increase of 105%, according to Statistics Norway (SSB).

The increase is also sharp among those with a long higher education. For that group, unemployment rose by 101% in the same period.

However, the highest unemployment has clearly been registered among those who only have primary or secondary school education as their highest completed level of education. 

Out of all of the unemployed Norwegians in November of 2019, 35% had only upper secondary school education, while 34% only had primary school education.
