According to Statistics Finland's data, around 18,000 new dwellings in blocks of flats were completed in 2012, of which 41 per cent were rented dwellings at the end of 2012. Nearly ten per cent of new dwellings in blocks of flats were right-of-occupancy dwellings and the rest of the dwellings were owner-occupied dwellings (24%) or still unoccupied (27%). The number of unoccupied dwellings is due to the fact that the tenure status of dwellings is mainly based on notices of removal and people move into newly completed dwellings in blocks of flats partly during the following year.

Description: The statistics on dwellings and housing conditions are produced annually and describe the existing stock, number of dwellings and housing conditions of household-dwelling units on the last day of the year. The dwelling stock comprises both permanently occupied dwellings and dwellings and flats without permanent occupants. Statistics Finland receives most of the data on dwellings from the population information system of the Population Register Centre, into which municipal building inspection authorities report data concerning buildings and dwellings that are subject to building permits. All persons residing permanently in the same dwelling form a household-dwelling unit. The statistics provide data on the dwelling stock by variables like tenure status, type of building, number of rooms and amenities. Housing conditions are described by variables such as structure and stage in life of household-dwelling unit and age of its members. Statistics on the dwellings and housing conditions can be produced according to all regional divisions based on municipalities and co-ordinates, as well as by postal code area. The statistics on the dwellings and housing conditions constitute total data.
