"The Norwegian economy is an example of a mixed economy, a prosperous capitalist welfare state featuring a combination of free market activity and large state ownership in certain key sectors. Public health care is free (above a certain level), and parents have 46 weeks paid[84] parental leave. The state income derived from natural resources includes a significant contribution from petroleum production. Norway has a very low unemployment rate, currently 2.6%.[85] 69% of the population aged 1574 are employed.[86] Persons in the labour force are either employed or unemployed. The remaining group of persons is labelled not in the labour force.[87] 9.5% of the population aged 1866 is receiving disability pension[88] and 30% of the labour force are employed by the government, the highest in the OECD.[89] The hourly productivity levels, as well as average hourly wages in Norway, are among the highest in the world."

2.6% unemployment-this is how we do it
