Birth rate

This page examines the birth rate of persons with immigrant background through the origin variable. All persons with at least one parent born in Finland are considered to be of Finnish background. Persons whose both parents or the only known parent were born abroad are considered to be of foreign background. If both parents of a person were born abroad, the background country is primarily the country of birth of the mother. If either parent's country of birth is unknown, the background country is the person's own country of birth. The background country for all persons with Finnish background is Finland.
