Preliminary population figures by municipality will be published on 15 February 2018

Statistics Finland will publish preliminary population figures by municipality for 2017 on 15 February 2018. The publication does not have preliminary data on population changes in 2017, information about their release will also be given on 15 February 2018. Preliminary population figures by municipality are also released as a database table.

Statistics Finland started receiving population change data in a new format at the beginning of 2017. The data in the new format required considerable changes in the software used in both data processing and statistics production. There are still problems in the processing of population change data and preliminary population change data cannot be published until the quality of the data is ensured.
