The Finnish independence in statistics
The decades of Finnish independence have seen several radical social, economic, scientific and technological changes. These changes are also clearly visible in social statistics - statistics are, after all, a mirror of society.
Through the 12 months of the 90th anniversary year of Finnish independence, Statistics Finland will publish on this website examples of what the development of our society and its current situation look like in the light of statistics.
We hope that these examples from statistics will help citizens to familiarize themselves with their roots and history. At the same time the examples offer a look behind the statistics, where they can be read not only as numbers but also as real stories about life and our society.
