Previous editor's note: But I've been corresponding with Statistics Norway ( the home of the statistics ) and they've said the same. Their license is essentially the same as the Norwegian License for Open Government Data ( NLOD - http://data.norge.no/nlod/en/1.0 ), but they can't yet write this, though they're working on it. That is, their license is CC BA compatible.
