Highly educated are an attractive force

Statistics – Attractive force

Migration indicators fluctuate depending on the time. The development of the total net migration has been slightly declining over the last 10 years.

In terms of wage income averages, we are doing fine compared to the largest cities. And since the cost of living here is lower, more money is left over for other things.

Our level of education is high, as about 40 % of the residents have a university degree.

Migration balance. The indicator shows the total net migration, i.e., the sum of the internal migration (net migration between municipalities) and international migration (net immigration).

Internal migration. The indicator shows net migration between municipalities, i.e., the difference between the number of immigrants (people coming into a municipality) and the number of emigrants (people leaving a municipality).

International migration. The indicator shows net immigration, i.e., the difference between immigration and emigration.

Natural increase. Excess of births, i.e., the difference between live births and deaths.

Average earnings. The indicator shows average earnings subject to withholding tax in the area, based on data from the Tax Administration.

Completed dwellings. Residential buildings completed during the year where at least half of the floor area is residential area. New housing production is an indication of the attractiveness of the area. The proportional indicator in the graph describes all new dwellings completed in the area and in annual proportion to the average population in the area. The review per 10,000 inhabitants allows for a better comparison of different areas.

The number of housing transactions. The indicator shows information received from the Tax Administration on changes in apartment ownership and transfer tax returns, by the time of publication.

The number of transactions includes Hitas and Arava dwellings, as well as, for example, observations that differ in area and price per square metre which are removed from the index calculation and the calculation of price per square metre.

The number of students. The indicator shows the total number of university, polytechnic, high school and vocational school students in the area. The data has been compiled according to the place of study.

The proportion of academic degrees. The indicator shows the share of academic degrees in the population aged 15 and over. The number includes those who have completed Bachelor, Master or Doctoral level.

The number of international students. The number of international students includes university, polytechnic, high school and vocational students, all age groups.
