According to Statistics Finland, employment of recent graduates continued weakening in 2013 as well. Except for those with lower university degrees, the proportion of employed persons was lower in all levels of education than one year previously. Finding a job was easiest for those with doctorate degrees, higher university degrees and polytechnic degrees, of whom around 85 per cent of the graduates were employed.

Statistical releases will not be issued in English from these statistics in 2015.

Description: These statistics examine graduates' employment and entry into further education, and their regional transition within a given time period from graduation. The phenomena are described at the end of the year according to transition to employment, unemployment, further studies, military service or other activity. In addition, the statistics describe the transition by area, industry, employer sector or other information. The statistics are produced by combining a number of Statistics Finland’s individual-based data files. No surveys are conducted among graduates.
