Please notice corrections have been made in the web version (see list of corrections). Nordic Statistical Yearbook 2007 is published for the 45th time. It is a reference book containing comprehensive and easily accessible statistics of various aspects of social life in the five Nordic countries, i.e. Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. In addition data are also presented on the selfgoverning regions, i.e. the Faroe Islands, Greenland and the Åland Islands. The aim of the yearbook is, as far as possible, to present comparable data on the Nordic countries. Additional tables on CDROM supplement the Nordic Statistical Yearbook. Observera att nätversionen innehåller korrigeringar (se rättelseblad). Nordisk statistisk årsbok utkommer nu för 45:e gången. Årsboken är en uppslagsbok, som avser vara en sammanfattande och överskådlig redovisning av statistik över samhällsförhållandena i de fem nordiska länderna Danmark, Finland, Island, Norge och Sverige. I många av tabellerna redovisas också uppgifter om de självstyrande områdena Färöarna, Grönland och Åland. Syftet med årsboken är att lägga fram sinsemellan jämförbara uppgifter om de nordiska länderna. Ytterligare tabeller finns på den CDROM som medföljer Nordisk statistisk årsbok 2007.

Manufacturing

The industrial revolution arrived relatively late in the Nordic countries, and it was not until the beginning of the 20th century that readily available hydroelectric power led to widespread industrialization beyond a few industrial sites. The structure of the manufacturing industry in the Nordic countries is quite varied. Ranging from industries based on the raw material produced from agriculture, forestry and fishery to high technology industries, e.g. telecommunication. This variety is partly due to historic reasons, because in the early days of industrialization the countries tried to become self-reliant with respect to many of the known industrial products of the time and partly because of the flexibility of the Nordic industries, which have adapted to new industrial products of the present day.
