Emigration of educated Finnish citizens bigger than immigration
18 Dec 2017
According to Statistics Finland, emigration of Finnish citizens with at least upper secondary qualifications has been bigger than immigration during the past decade. The migration loss has been growing since 2009. Among those with at least lowest level tertiary qualifications, the annual migration loss has grown relatively moderately after 2009. In contrast, the annual migration loss has increased fast in recent years among those with upper secondary qualifications. This is probably at least partly linked to Finnish young people going abroad for studies.

Description: The statistics on migration describe the moving of individual persons. The statistics differentiate moves across the Finnish territorial boundaries, that is, immigration and emigration, and internal moves within the country, which are further classified into moves between and within municipalities. In migration statistics, data are compiled by the age, gender, marital status, native language, country of birth, and region of arrival and departure of migrants. A person may appear in one year’s statistics several times because the statistical unit is move.
