... confidential
The data are protected if there are fewer than 50 persons in the population.
Area
A person's place of residence on the last day of the year. For register indicators, the regional division is regions, regional capitals and 14 other big cities, for survey indicators, regions. The latest valid area division at the time of completion is used in the tables.
Origin and background country
Based on Statistics Finland's origin classification. In the integration indicators, the population is divided into two groups: those with foreign background born abroad (1) and those with Finnish background and those with foreign background born in Finland (2). Data on background country only for persons with foreign background born abroad on the regional level 'whole country'. The data for Oceania have been combined with unknown due to the small size.
The origin and background country are determined based on the country of birth data of the person's parents. Persons whose both parents or the only known parent have been born abroad are considered to be persons with foreign background. Persons who have been born abroad and whose parents' data are not included in the Population Information System are also considered to be persons with foreign background. Persons born in Finland before 1970, whose native language is a foreign language have been considered to be persons with foreign background, as have persons born in Finland in 1970 or after this, whose parents' data are not included in the Population Information System.
All such persons who have at least one parent who was born in Finland are considered to be persons with Finnish background. Data on persons that died before 1964 have not been entered into the Population Information System of the Population Register Centre. There are nearly 900,000 persons among the Finnish population who have been born in Finland and both parent's country of birth is unknown because the parents of these persons have died before the Population Information System was established. People born in Finland before 1970, whose parents' background is not known, have been concluded to be persons with Finnish background if their native language is a national language (Finnish, Swedish, Sami).
The background country for all persons with Finnish background is Finland. If both parents of a person have been born abroad, the background country is primarily the country of birth of the biological mother. If a person only has knowledge of a father that was born abroad, the background country is the country of birth of the father. If either parent's country of birth is unknown, the background country for persons born abroad is their own country of birth. For persons born in Finland, whose parents' data are unknown and who have been deducted to be with foreign background, the background country is unknown.
Age
Age refers to the age of the person in full years on the last day of the year (register indicators) or at the time of drawing of the sample on 5 March 2018 (survey indicators). The information has been obtained from the Population Information System.
Sex
Person's gender on the last day of the year (register indicators) or at the time of drawing of the sample on 5 March 2018 (survey indicators). The information about sex has been obtained from the Population Information System.
