100 years of independence

During one hundred years, Finland’s population has grown from three million to five-and-a-half million. The life expectancy of Finns has risen by 35 years from the early years of independence. The Statistical Yearbook of Finland published by Statistics Finland has described changes and development of Finnish society ever since 1879.

The Statistical Yearbook of Finland 2017 contains long time series and regional data, as well as plenty of comparison data on other countries. The book is in Finnish, Swedish and English, and contains 603 pages and 625 tables.
