More than 7,000 foreigners moved to Rogaland last year, but over 9,200 people exited Norway’s oil region.

According to figures published by NRK, most people who lived in Rogaland moved to Denmark, with the other top four places occupied by Sweden, Britain, the USA, and Canada. Approximately one in three moved to Oslo, Hordaland, and Vest-Agder.

In a separate case, 2010’s leadership survey by the International Research Institute of Stavanger (IRIS) revealed Stavanger’s inhabitants and businesses were not as international or innovative as they claimed.

Almost half of all business leaders who answered the poll preferred said they preferred working with regional and local people instead of outsiders, and were less interested in people with new ideas than their counterparts in other Norwegian cities.
