Finances of municipalities in Mainland Finland continued to weaken in 2019
05 Feb 2020
According to the financial statement estimates received from municipalities in Mainland Finland, the combined operating margin of municipalities weakened by EUR 1.2 billion in 2019 compared with the financial statements of the previous year. However, as a result of growth in central government transfers to local government, tax revenue and financial income, the annual contribution margin weakened less in euros than the operating margin. These data appear from Statistics Finland's statistics on quarterly local government finances, for which financial statement estimate data concerning 2019 were collected from all 295 municipalities and 133 joint municipal authorities in Mainland Finland.
