Automated data collection

Statistics Finland is actively developing its data collections. We intend to reduce the data supply burden and make the data production process more efficient. We follow the development of data transfer standards and cooperate with various stakeholder groups to minimise the response burden.

At the moment, Statistics Finland is involved in many projects based on the XBRL standard. You can read more about the XBRL standard on the pages of Finland's XBRL consortium.

The XBRL standard is currently used in two of Statistics Finland's data collections. In the monthly inquiry for accommodation statistics, data suppliers are able to report with the Hotellix Suite and Travelnet software. For reporting on statistics on agriculture, several different accounting applications can be used. More information on the pages of data collections.
