The monthly data become revised during the following months so that the final data for the year are published in the release concerning the first quarter of the following year. The base year of the monthly index is 2010. Data by area starting from 2010 are available in the StatFin service: http://pxweb2.stat.fi/Database/StatFin/Asu/ashi/ashi_fi.asp (in Finnish only).
