conzoom®Norway

 

Above you find the percentage distribution of the 9 conzoom®groups and the 36 conzoom®types in the Norwegian conzoom®. All households are segmented if they are present in national registers at the time of the calculation. The distribution changes a bit from year to year due to the common development in society, changes to the calculation of the variables on which  conzoom® is modelled, developments in clustering methods and improvements to the  conzoom®model itself

 

Below each segment is presented. If you work with conzoom® in the web app conzoom®select you have access to more detailed information on each type
