According to Statistics Finland's preliminary data, Finland's population at the end of June was 5,507,101. During January-June Finland's population increased by 3,804 persons, which is 1,805 persons less than in the preliminary data the year before. The reason for the population increase was migration gain from abroad: the number of immigrants was 6,324 higher than that of emigrants. There was no natural population growth, since deaths exceeded births by 2,520 persons.
