Local and regional analysis

The municipalities and counties of Norway are transitioning. The municipal and regional reform are reducing the number of municipalities and counties by 2020 to create larger, more functional enterprises. Meanwhile, the population is settling down in the large cities to a larger extent than before, while local trade is moving to shopping malls and business parks on the outskirts of the city centres. Furthermore, several large projects in infrastucture are currently underway, which will impact regions across the country in the future.

Vista Analyse assist both the public and private sector with analysis and processes in relation to regional and urban development, trade and industry analysis, strategy and planning for future growth and transitioning housing patterns among the population.

Vista Analyse have developed a comprehensive set of models for uilization in local and regional analysis. Below are some of the key models described:
