Description

Regional household accounts are a component of regional accounts. Regional accounts are an extension of national accounts from which data are available by sub-regional unit, region and major region, as well as by other regional divisions based on municipalities if required.

Data content

Regional household accounts describe the income of households in Finland and its regional redistribution by the location of households. The regional household accounts are compiled following the guidelines of the European System of Accounts (ESA 1995). The used concepts and definitions are the same as in the sector account of households in national accounts. Regional household accounts deviate from national accounts so that they include profits from sale of property and income from incentive options. If required, the data are also available exclusive of profits from sale of property and income from incentive options precisely in accordance with national accounts.

Classifications used

Areas: NUTS 1 (Mainland Finland and Åland Islands), NUTS 2 (major regions), NUTS 3 (regions) and NUTS 4 (sub-regional units). The household sector matches the classification used in national accounts.
