Statistics Finland

Statistics Finland produces diversified information on society and is an active member of the international statistical community.

Our task is to combine data into statistics and information services for the needs of ordinary people, public administration and scientific research. In addition to production of statistics, we advance the use of statistical data, develop statistical methodology and co-ordinate the National Statistical Service in Finland.

Our work is based on independence and ethicalness. We want to be a secure employer and we invest in permanent employment relationships, personnel development and well-being. We have a training programme in statistics as well as good training and development possibilities, supported leisure activities and good sports facilities and guided physical activities.
