Guidance and information service

Looking for statistical data? We help you find the statistical figures you need and interpret the statistics. We also provide guidance on how to use statistical databases.

Our telephone advisory service is open on weekdays from 9 am to 4 pm. We will respond to your questions within two working days.

Tips for searching for information

Statistics Finland's databases are a good source for searching for statistical figures, tables and data.

From the list of frequently asked questions you can find, for example, the population by municipality, the most common names and how to calculate rent increases.

Brief guidance is free of charge

Guidance and individual statistical data are free of charge. If it takes more than 15 minutes to find the data, the work is chargeable. We agree on the price of chargeable work and the data delivery schedule in advance.

Extensive data requests

If the answer cannot be found in ready-made data, we can compile data on order. Such special compilations may include more extensive tables than the available ones or other selections from statistical data.

If your request concerns enterprise data, you can contact the Business Register experts directly.
