The data on 2013 to 2017 differ from those presented in Statistics Finland's statistics on vocational education, the statistics on students and qualifications of educational institutions and possibly elsewhere on the number of students in vocational education because the data in this table have been made comparable with each other. The data were made comparable due to changes in the school system.
