Net immigration by Finnish citizens turned positive in 2020
20 Dec 2021
Net immigration by Finnish citizens has been negative in the 2010s. In 2016 to 2019, migration loss has clearly decreased, however, and in 2020 net immigration turned into a gain of 1,109 persons. The development of net immigration by Finnish citizens has been rising in all educational groups. Net immigration was positive for those with basic level education and those with higher tertiary education or doctorate level education last year, while in other educational groups emigration exceeded immigration marginally.

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.
