Ever since the initiative was taken to develop the State Administration Database, there has been a need to systemize relevant publications concerning the units in the database.

The first spesific mapping started in 2005 based on funds from the SAMDATA project financed by the Norwegian Research Council. In this project, The Rokkan Centre together with NSD started to add new basic information about the units in the database in an accumulating manner.

Central people in the literature project have been professor paul G. Roness, University of Bergen and Sturla Herfindal, the Rokkan Centre, Bergen.

Also all available annual reports have been added as pdf-files.
