Paavo describes differences between areas

Which of Finland’s postal code areas has most people living alone? And one-parent households with children? These two new variables and much more information can be found from Statistics Finland’s free-of-charge Paavo service. The service’s data have been updated today, on Paavo's name day.

Paavo - Open data by postal code area contains diversified statistical and map data by postal code area. The data are available as an easy-to-use database and downloadable through the interface service. The data can be used for decision-making or for learning more about your area of residence.

Paavo's statistical data contain data on the areas' population structure, the degree of education, the income of the inhabitants and households, the size of households and life stage, buildings and dwellings, workplaces, and the main activities of the inhabitants. New data are updated to the service annually in January.
