The social differences in Oslo, we must take seriously. In Oslo, there are areas where 2/3 of children grow up below the poverty line. The current differences we can do something with. The community is in a great and rapid change, and it is not always the case that history repeats itself.
Children of the immigrants give birth to fewer childrenSwitch the alarm about the new Oslo-numbers:- A total of segregated city in
the Norwegian-born immigrant women give birth to on average fewer children than the rest of the population. It shows fresh figures from Statistics norway (SSB). While fruktbarhetstallet among Norwegian-born women with an immigrant background is nok 1.54, the corresponding figures for the population of 1.56. It is, in other words a generational change. It is normal, because we know that the integration goes in the right direction for Norwegian-born with immigrant parents.
We know that the number of children one chooses to get the hang closely together with the level of education and participation in the labour market. Figures from STATISTICS norway show that there are major changes that are about to happen. Last year, la SBB presented its report on living conditions among Norwegian-born with immigrant parents in Norway. For the first time in 10 years attempting SBB to provide an analysis of how it is with youth with a minority background. SSB-the report confirms that Norwegian-born with immigrant parents feel more a sense of belonging to Norway than the country their parents come from. English is the dominant language among them - 76 percent speak English at home.- Cut cash assistance
The level of education is still high. Norwegian-born with immigrant parents has more often higher education than the rest of the population as a whole. Updated figures from STATISTICS norway also shows that Norwegian-born with immigrant parents in the age groups 25-29 years and 30-39 years of age have significantly higher participation in the labour market than their parents.
Should we be worried?
It runs generally very well with the Norwegian-born children and young people with immigrant parents, raised in Norway. Therefore, we have no basis to generalize and link the challenges to the people with a particular background. Poverty and social differences, acting first and foremost about class, not skin color. We must be proud of good results, and cheer on those who succeed in our society.
at the same time, there are several factors that should worry us. Boys struggle more than girls in school, and who need early and adapted follow-up. The labour party in Oslo is therefore keen to provide those students with the greatest needs for help more teachers and more resources. Kvadratmeterprisen determines where people can live in our city. Therefore we see a high concentration of challenges in parts of Oslo. The bets in the he lived for, Oslo south Oslo inner must therefore be continued and strengthened. For it is through targeted efforts that we create a good future for all newborns and unborn children in Oslo. the
