Background and purpose: The Public Health Act requires all municipalities in the country to have an overview of health status and factors of influence. Previous surveys show that the review work does not satisfy section 5 of the Public Health Act. The surveys also show that there are differences in municipality size when it comes to overview. The study examines how far Norwegian municipalities have come with the overview work, and whether the differences in municipality size still apply. Research question: What is the status of the overview work in 2019, and to what extent does the size and centrality of the municipality influence the work on the overview? Method: The study was conducted with quantitative cross-sectional design. The data collection was carried out in 2019 as part of the FLINK 2019 research project. The sample in the study consisted of 428 municipal public health coordinators in Norway. Frequency analyses for descriptive data and bivariate associations were performed using the Mann-Whitney U-test, Kruskal Wallis Test and Spearman's correlation coefficient.
