Land use

This indicator shows land use in the Nordic region. More specifically it shows arable land in per cent of total land area and forests, pastures, inland waters, icecap areas and other land in square kilometres. Total land area is defined as the area within the outline or the contours of the country, excluding fjords and inlets with free access to the sea, but including lakes and streams, at the time of measurement. Data is available for Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Åland. For more information on Nordic Statistics:
