Dagsavisen makes headline the latest statistics about the future demographic structure of Oslo. The title on the front page is “Here is Oslo’s Future“. According to the article, in 2040, nearly half of the population in Norway’s capital will be either immigrants or children of two immigrant parents.
The prediction is based on the report “Regional projection of the number of immigrants, 2011-2040” , written by demographics expert Inger Texmon. Estimates are made for the whole country, and Norway Statistics Bureau (SSB) states that approximately seven out of ten of the immigrants will come from countries outside the EU / EEA and the prediction comes true if the development pattern remains same as today.
VG continues to give consumer hints. Today’s bold headline is “So you will be debt-free faster“. In the details of the article, the newspaper tells how to check the effect of increasing payments of loans for only 2000 NOK.
The prediction of SSB about the immigrant population in Oslo in 2040 appeals the interest of VG. The other headline above the main story is telling half of the population in Norway’s capital will be either immigrants or children of two immigrant parents in 30 years.
