Project Purpose

In this project, we developed and expanded the academic scope of one of the main Norwegian surveys mapping the populations’ attitudes to immigration and integration. The Integration Barometer has been conducted since 2004.

Project Approach

This years’ version included new elements such as in depth questions on stereotypes and different types of immigration, and methodological state of the art field experiments.


The study was based on a broad scoped survey conducted among a representative population sample of 3000 net web-panel respondents. The Integration Barometer is part of the Directorate of Integration and Diversity’s effort to provide updated information on attitudes on immigration and integration. The study has been conducted in several waves since 2004, opening for analysis of trends in the attitudes among the Norwegian population in this highly sensitive policy field.
