The purpose of this paper is to test the typogram method for the agrarian con-ditions of Norway by applying the 22 variables and the five classes of the 1974 model*. In Norway an agricultural census is made every tenth year. Our data were taken from the 1969 census. In calculating the scores in the table some data were got from other sources of the Central Bureau of Statistics, notably the results of annual sampling surveys. Aggregate data at county level were used on the assumption that this would be the most expedient for comparison on a world scale.
