Immigrants and integration

The share of people with foreign background in Finland's population has grown from 0.8 to 6.2 per cent in the course of 1990 to 2015. These thematic pages present the key data on the population with immigrant background and on international migration in the past few years.

The data on the website were collected from different statistics, where the concepts and data sources differ slightly from each other.

The statistics presented on the website concern persons permanently resident in Finland. Data on asylum seekers and residence permits can be found on the web pages of the Finnish Immigration Service.
