dc.description.abstractThis thesis investigates the geographical variation of excess mortality and excess decline in employment, during the covid-19 pandemic in Norway. The data were collected from Statistics Norway and The Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration. The method tells you how much the present value are greater or lesser, compared to previous years. Excess mortality and decline in employment were measured at a municipality, and county levels respectively. I found no evidence of effect on excess all-cause mortality, but sign of effect on excess decline in employment. The results showed evidence of geographical differences, were Oslo had the most dominant results regarding decline in employment. The thesis can be used as preliminary results for policy makers for future events, and can be used as a guideline to reproduce the investigation with present up to date data. The method used is straightforward, but makes it easier to reproduce and compare with other similar investigations.en_US
