Abstract [en]

The objective of this article is to identify how large the groups of weak readers are in the Nordic countries and to examine the composition of these groups with respect to gender, immigrant background, socioeconomic background, enjoyment of reading and school related factors. The percentage of weak readers varies from 8 percent in Finland to 17 percent in Iceland and Sweden. The percentage of weak readers has increased in Finland, Iceland and Sweden between 2000 and 2009 and decreased in Norway and Denmark during the same period. The composition of the group weak readers seems to be similar in the Nordic countries. Although there are many similarities between the countries, Finland seems to be the country that partly differs from the other countries. One possible reason behind this could be that the group weak readers is that much smaller than in the other countries and that this has an influence on the composition of the group.
