Historical time series of National Accounts in 1860-2011

A historical time series table has been added to the database tables of National Accounts, "Historical series: National Accounts 1860–2011". The table includes time series of National Accounts on the Finnish economy since 1860. For the time being, the table contains time series on Finland's GDP and population. The data content will be widened later.

The time series were compiled in the Bank of Finland?s research project on growth and published for the first time in 1988 in Riitta Hjerppe's book "Suomen talous 1860–1985: Kasvu ja rakennemuutos" (English version, "The Finnish Economy 1860–1985: Growth and structural change", in 1989). Statistics Finland has widened the time series with updated data from 1975 onwards. The methodological description of the time series is found in Riitta Hjerppe's book.

The published time series are updated for the latest years in connection with the releases of National Accounts.
