Poles in Norway are citizens and residents of Norway who are of Polish descent. They are the biggest immigrant group in Norway.[1]

Demographics[edit]

Estimates of the number of Poles living in Norway vary from 72,103[2] to 91,179[1] (about 1,22-1,76% of the Norwegian population). Non-official data claim that the Polish minority may stand at least 120,000. In 2001, however, there were about 6,432 Polish immigrants.[3]

Places with significant populations are Oslo, Moss, Stavanger, Bergen, Fredrikstad, Trondheim, Drammen, Alesund, Molde..[citation needed]

The first Poles came to Norway in 1830-1831 after the fall of the November Uprising.[citation needed]

Socioeconomics[edit]

According to Statistics Norway, in the 2010-2013 period, the proportion of Poland-born perpetrators of criminal offences aged 15 and older in Norway was 66.2 per 1000 residents.[4] This was compared to averages of 44.9 among native Norwegians and 112.9 among Norway-born residents with parents of foreign origin.[5] When corrected for variables such as age and gender (M2), residence (M3), and employment (M4), the unadjusted Polish average (M1) for 2010-2013 decreased to 46.18 after age and gender adjustment, 47.07 after residence adjustment, and 41.55 after employment adjustment.[6] Immigrants from Poland were the only over-represented population for which all three adjustable variables, including residence, could explain their over-representation.[7] According to Statistics Norway, as of 2015, a total of 7,952 Poland citizens residing in Norway incurred sanctions. The principal breaches were traffic offences (4,508 individuals), followed by other offences for profit (1,921 individuals), drug and alcohol offences (623 individuals), public order and integrity violations (379 individuals), property theft (368 individuals), violence and maltreatment (97 individuals), other offences (36 individuals), criminal damage (11 individuals), and sexual offences (9 individuals).[8]

Det er også viktig å påpeke at kjønn, alder,bosted og sysselsetting kan forklare hele overrepresentasjonen kun blantinnvandrere fra Polen. For de andre landene som var overrepresentert i utgangspunktet består overrepresentasjonen også etter at disse faktorene er tatt hensyn til
