The article presents findings from a new mapping of the creative industries in Norway 2008–2014. It reviews previous mappings of the creative industries and discusses questions related to construction of the creative industries population and its economic measurement. Reported results include value added and employment for the whole sector and for the selected industries music, books, education and teaching, as well as the differences between the creative industries and the mainland economy in Norway. Main findings include positive development of value added and employment for the whole sector throughout the period 2008–2014, but not as strong growth in value added as in the Mainland economy. Additionally, the authors perceive and discuss such mapping’s consequences, and impact on, the cultural policydiscourse.
