Description

County elections are held every four years. Statistics Finland produces official statistics from the elections. The preliminary statistics are published as soon as possible starting from the election night. The second data, or the final data are supplied to Statistics Finland after the election result is confirmed. After the confirmation of the election result, the confirmed data corresponding to the preliminary statistics are released on the statistics pages and the StatFin databases are updated. Detailed data on elections can be found on Statistics Finland’s website. Statistics Finland receives the basic data for the elections from the Ministry of Justice’s election in-formation system. Statistics Finland’s election data system comprises four election data files: regional file, party file, candidate file and candidate register.
