08 Dec 2016
According to Statistics Finland's data on population changes, having children is now most common for those aged 30 to 34, slightly more common than for those aged 25 to 29. In relative terms, more children are born to those aged 35 to 39 than to persons aged 20 to 24, whose birth rate has lowered considerably in recent years. The birth rate among those aged 40 to 44 has continued its slight growth, which started in the mid-1970s. In the past five years, the birth rate has declined clearly among those aged 20 to 34.
