Corona situation report of 21 August 2020: latest economic statistics coming up

Statistics Finland's corona situation report has been on a break during the summer. At the beginning of autumn, the situation report will be published again for the time being. In the situation report we collect recent statistical data describing the corona situation and the release times of statistics to be released in the coming week.

We will continue to publish accelerated weekly statistics describing the corona situation for the time being. In addition to accelerated statistics, we also publish other statistics and articles describing the exceptional situation, and information on these is gathered into this situation report.

The production and publication of statistics will continue normally in other aspects. Statistics Finland will not conduct face-to-face interviews during autumn. In other respects, the aim is to conduct the data collections as planned.
