This is a vision indicator selected by the Nordic Council of Ministers. It relates to the targetNordic mobility under the area A competitive Nordic region.

The indicator measures the number of people who cross-border commute in the Region of Øregrund (i.e. between Denmark and Sweden).

Please note that there is a break in the time series. Data for the period 1997-2014 comes from Ørestat and includes people who live in the Danish part of the Øresund region and have their main job (in November) in Sweden or vice versa. The statistics only concern employees, ie. self-employed and employed spouses are not included. For Denmark, the period 2016 and onwards is retrieved from the Nordic statistics database while Sweden is retrieved from Ørestat. Final figures from Ørestat for both countries are expected to come in the autumn of 2022. For more information on this, please see table COMM10 under Labour market/Communting.

In the table, the Nordic Region is comprised of the following countries/areas: Denmark and Sweden.
