Migration loss of Finnish citizens has decreased in all educational groups
21 Dec 2020
The net immigration of Finnish citizens has been negative in the 2010s, but during 2016 to 2019, migration loss has decreased clearly. The trend has been falling in all educational groups, especially among those with upper secondary level and at least higher university level qualifications.

Description: The statistics on migration describe the moving of individual persons. The statistics differentiate moves across the Finnish territorial boundaries, that is, immigration and emigration, and internal moves within the country, which are further classified into moves between and within municipalities. In migration statistics, data are compiled by the age, gender, marital status, native language, country of birth, and region of arrival and departure of migrants. A person may appear in one year’s statistics several times because the statistical unit is move.
