According to Statistics Finland's Education Statistics, employment among students decreased by close on one percentage in 2015 from the previous year. Slightly less than one-half of students were employed during their studies. Since 2004, the share has been highest in 2008 when nearly six out of ten students were employed during their studies.

Description: These statistics describe employment during studies among students attending post-comprehensive school education. The data on employment among students are produced by combining Statistics Finland’s individual-based data files on students with the data of employment statistics. No surveys are conducted among students. The statistics contain a diversity of data on the education and employment of students. The statistics have been produced annually since 1995. In 2005 the population of the statistics was modified to include only students 18 years of age or older. Statistics for the years 1995–2004 include the employment data of students younger than 18 years of age, unless otherwise indicated. 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.
