Publication of income statistics postponed to next year

Statistics Finland will not publish income distribution statistics nor statistics on taxable income in December as previously planned because the statistical data on personal taxation produced by the Tax Administration for these publications is not yet ready. The data will not be completed until later due to the Tax Administration's data system renewal. Because the production of the data to be released involves several steps, the statistics can, at the earliest, be published in late January.

Statistics Finland’s income distribution statistics include three separate publications that all are postponed: income differentials, income development by area and release of preliminary data on poverty. One release of the statistics on taxable income will be postponed. The publication time for statistics on income taxes released by the Tax Administration will also be postponed to next year.
