Building stock

Official Statistics of Finland (OSF)
The statistics on building stock are produced annually and describe the existing stock and number of buildings on the last day of the year. Free-time residences, on which separate statistics are produced, are not included in the building stock. Neither are light-structured shelters and kiosks, buildings used for agricultural production only, or separate sauna or utility buildings of the residential buildings included in the building stock. Statistics on the building stock can be produced by all regional divisions based on municipalities or co-ordinates, as well as by postal code area. Statistics Finland receives most its data on the building stock from the population information system of the Population Register Centre, into which municipal building inspection authorities report data concerning buildings that are subject to building permits. The statistics on building stock constitute total data.
