Description

These statistics describe how new entrants to post-comprehensive school education progress in their studies up to the attainment of a qualification or degree. The statistics contain data on started education, duration of education, change of education, and on what students have done if they have discontinued education. Data on the progress of university studies have been produced at intervals of a fixed number of years since the 1980s and the 1990s. Data on the progress of studies in upper secondary general, vocational and polytechnic, and university education are produced by monitoring the progress made by new students since the year 2000. In accordance with the Statistics Act, the personal data from which these statistics are compiled are confidential. As a rule, the statistics produced from them are public.
