Statistics Finland and the OECD have published two joint reports on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Finnish economy and on the indicators of value added-based international trade by means of more detailed data.
The responsibility for collecting the quarterly financial data of municipalities and joint municipal authorities was transferred from Statistics Finland to the State Treasury at the start of 2021. The first actual data on quarterly reported local government finances are now available on the State Treasury’s Exploreadministration.fi service.
The release of annual national accounts data will be postponed by around three weeks due to delayed main source data. The new release date is 14 July, and the data for 2018 to 2020 will then be updated.
The United Nations Economic and Social Council has selected Finland as a member of the United Nations Statistical Commission for the term of 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2025. The Director General of Statistics Finland, Markus Sovala, represents Finland in the Statistical Commission.
