The Findicator service built by Statistics Finland and the Prime Minister's Office is now also available in Swedish and English. In addition, the usability of the service has been improved and social media functions have been added to it.
The free-of-charge Findicator service contains nearly 100 indicators describing social development. The service gives access to up-to-date statistics on the economy, health, education, labour market and the environment.
The indicators derive from Statistics Finland and several other Finnish producers of statistics. The most recent data for each indicator are updated in the service as soon as they are published by the producer of the data concerned.
The indicators are directly linked to the StatFin database, which contains more detailed information about the indicators, such as regional data. In the database the user can make searches according to the variables and time period under examination. It is also easy to copy tables and graphs from the service for further use.
