Inflation

The monetary policy target is annual consumer price inflation of close to 2 percent over time.

Regional network

On a quarterly basis, Norges Bank surveys executives from over 300 enterprises and organisations about recent economic developments and the outlook ahead.

Output gap

Norges Bank operates a flexible inflation targeting regime, so that weight is given to both variability in inflation and variability in output and employment.
