We do our best to ensure that all content on ssb.no is accessible to everyone, regardless of any disabilities.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers of web content to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. The guidelines define three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA and Level AAA. The minimum requirements in WCAG 2.0 can be found on the Norwegian Digitalisation Agency’s website.

Ssb.no partially conforms to WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partial conformance means that some of the content does not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Limitations and non-conformance

There are some limitations to our pages. The list below describes known issues and an indication of when they will be resolved. Feel free to contact us if you find an issue that is not included in the list.

Known limitations of ssb.no

  • Appendices in some articles do not have a unique ID. This can cause problems for screen readers.
  • The share function on some pages does not have a unique ID. This can cause problems for screen readers.
  • Many of the tables on the website have an empty header. This can be confusing for users who navigate using a keyboard or use a screen reader.
  • The contrast is poor in some tabs for archives and tables in old statistics releases.
  • PDFs on the website do not have tags on the page title or language.
  • The contrast is too low on the key figure denominations on some statistics pages.

All of these limitations will be resolved by the end of 2021.
