Description: Statistics on taxable incomes (formerly Statistics on income and property) describe the income subject to taxation, deductions, liabilities and taxation of private persons. The basic data of the statistics are drawn from the Tax Administration’s database and cover all private persons who have received taxable income during the year. Income and taxation are examined by, inter alia, income brackets as well as age and gender. The total data also allow for regional examination upwards from the level of municipalities. The statistics are produced annually. As from statistical year 2005 they are available only on the Internet.
