Classification of enterprises and establishments in data collections from enterprises - classification service for enterprise data collections

When replying to Statistics Finland's inquiries, you may have to sum up your customer data by sector and industry. Statistics Finland uses information classified according to industry and sector as basic data for several statistics.

From the link below, you can go to a table containing the latest information on the basic classifications of all enterprises and establishments in operation and those having closed operation after 31 December 2010. The data are updated monthly.

The file contains the following information: Business ID, name, industry identifier at 2-digit level, full sector category and type category of business activity
(field order: ytunnus = Business ID, nimi = name, toimiala2008 = industry2008, sektori2012 = sector2012, yritystoiminnan tyyppiluokitus = type category of business activity). The file can be copied and saved as part of your enterprise's information systems.

The values of the "type category of business activity" variable that has been added to the file are:

1 = Micro enterprise

2 = Small enterprise

3 = Medium size enterprise

4 = Large enterprise

0 = Not specified

The type category is determined separately for each enterprise based on the number of wage and salary earners and turnover and/or balance sheet total, as well as the group relationship.
