Emission of greenhouse gasses, measured in warming units (CO2 equivalences), from the Icelandic air transportation economic sector grew by 27% between 2016 and 2017. An estimate of emissions for this sector for 2018 shows that they increased by 5% since 2017
The building cost index compiled in the middle of September 2019 is 146.3 points (December 2009=100), unchanged from the previous month.
The enrolment rate of 19 year olds fell from 68.4% in the autumn of 2017 to 59.9% in the autumn of 2018. The lower enrolment rate is probably linked to the reduced requirements for the matriculation exam and indicates that not all students who complete the matriculation exam in three years enter directly into programmes at the tertiary level.
