Changes in the data content

The variable ”Aged 18 or over” has been added to the data group Main type of activity (PT). The data protection of the data group has changed. The data on main type of activity is protected if there are fewer than 10 persons aged 18 or over in the grid. If there are fewer than three inhabitants in the grid, also the number of persons aged 18 or over is protected. Changes made in previous years are described in the Grid Database description.

Data protection
