Due to summer holidays from week 26 to week 31, you must expect a somewhat longer response time from Helsedataservice and the health registries.

Norwegian Surveillance System for Communicable Diseases (MSIS)

MSIS contains information about infectious diseases in humans in Norway, from 1977 until today.

Open data

At msis.no, you can find statistics for infectious diseases from 1977 to today. You can also create your own tables. If you are looking for figures on covid-19, select the disease category "Coronavirus with outbreak potential".

If you need further simple statistical overviews, please contact the Department of Infectious Disease Registries at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health or send an e-mail to msis.data@fhi.no.

Criteria for data access

The data sources have different purposes and are regulated by different laws and regulations. In order to access information from the data sources, what you plan to use the information for must be in accordance with the purpose of the data source.

The types of approvals and documents you must submit to access information depend on what you are applying for, what you are going to use the information for and how you are going to process it. We therefore recommend that you take the time to familiarize yourself with the application guides before starting the application process:
