WHAT’S THE DEAL?

Reader's Digest International - - Letters -

Why is Nor­way the only Nordic coun­try al­most never in­cluded in Num­bers? In July and Au­gust, even lit­tle Ice­land is in­cluded! Is Nor­way still so un­known to many that it is con­sid­ered to be a city in Swe­den?

SVERRE SYLTE, Nor­way

Editor’s Re­ply: For the Num­bers depart­ment, we use the en­tire sur­vey, if pos­si­ble, but of­ten there are data from more coun­tries than we can print. Then we need to make a se­lec­tion. We al­ways be­gin with data from coun­tries where Reader’s Digest ap­pears, in­clud­ing Nor­way. But the reader has a point. Of the ten Num­bers pages pro­duced so far this year, Nor­way was fea­tured in five. How­ever, two of the re­main­ing five dealt with sub­jects lim­ited to the Euro­pean Union. So, over­all, the sit­u­a­tion is not all that bad.
