Statistics Finland's Web Service is a WMS interface service through which the following data required by INSPIRE and national legislation on geographic information are available: 1) Statistical units: Regional divisions (municipality, major region, region, subregional unit, Regional State Administrative Agency (AVI), Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY), electoral district, working area) and grid 1 km x 1 km. 2) Nonprofit and public services: Educational institutions (comprehensive schools, upper secondary general schools) 3) Production and industrial facilities: Production and industrial facilities 4) Population distribution by the regional divisions used in statistics and by 1 km x 1 km grids. Other data published:  Open data by postal code area (Paavo)  Population distribution by 5 km x 5 km grids The data are administered by Statistics Finland. The service is free of charge and does not require authentication or identification with a user ID and password. The general Terms of Use must be observed when using the data: http://tilastokeskus.fi/org/lainsaadanto/copyright_en.html.

Grid net for statistics 5 km x 5 km covers whole of Finland. The grid net includes all grid squares in Finland. The location reference of a grid square is the coordinates of the bottom left corner of each grid cell. An identifier in accordance with national conventions (consecutive numbering) and INSPIRE definitions (format: 5kmNxxxxExxxx, where 5km expresses the square grid size, N the y coordinate of the bottom left corner of the square divided by 5,000 and E the x coordinate of the bottom left corner of the square divided by 5,000) has been produced for each grid cell. The Grid net for statistics 5 km x 5 km is the area division used in the production of statistics by 5 km x 5 km squares. The general Terms of Use must be observed when using the data: https://tilastokeskus.fi/org/lainsaadanto/copyright_en.html. In addition to the national version, an INSPIRE information product is also available from the data.

Number of population by 5 km x 5 km grids. The number of population on the last day of the reference year (31 December) by age group. Data includes only inhabited grids. The statistical variables of the data are: Total population (vaesto), number of men (miehet) and women (naiset), under 15 year olds (ika_0_14), 15–64 year olds (ika_15_64), and aged over 65 (ika_65_). Only the number of population is reported for grids of under 10 inhabitants. A grid identifier is expressed using a national identification code derived from the coordinates (idD_nro (num)) and INSPIRE's standard identification code (grd_id (char)). The data also contains the coordinates of the lower lefthand corner of a grid (xkoord, ykoord (num)). The data describes the population distribution independent of administrative areas (such as municipal borders). The data is suitable for examination of population distribution and making various spatial analysis. The general Terms of Use must be observed when using the data: https://tilastokeskus.fi/org/lainsaadanto/copyright_en.html. In addition to the national version, an INSPIRE information product is also available from the data.

Production and Industrial Facilities contain the data set on establishments based on Statistics Finland's Business Register as follows: Data: location coordinates of the establishment, industry according to the Standard Industrial Classification TOL 2008 at the 2digit level Industries according to D2.8.III.8 INSPIRE in TOL 2008 industries: B Mining and quarrying C Manufacturing D Electricity, gas steam and air conditioning supply E Water supply, sewerage, waste management and remediation activities F Construction H Transport and storage (excl. 53 Postal and courier activities) Coverage of the data set: establishments with over ten employees Statistical reference year: 2018 The data set is also suitable for viewing the location of industrial establishments. The coverage of the spatial data is about 90 % of the statistical data. The general Terms of Use must be observed when using the data: http://tilastokeskus.fi/org/lainsaadanto/copyright_en.html.

Grid net for statistics 1 km x 1 km covers whole of Finland. The grid net includes all grid squares in Finland. The location reference of a grid square is the coordinates of the bottom left corner of each grid cell. An identifier in accordance with national conventions (consecutive numbering) and INSPIRE definitions (format: 1kmNxxxxExxxx, where 1km expresses the square grid size, N the y coordinate of the bottom left corner of the square divided by 1,000 and E the x coordinate of the bottom left corner of the square divided by 1,000) has been produced for each grid cell. The Grid net for statistics 1 km x 1 km is the area division used in the production of statistics by 1 km x 1 km squares. For utilizing grid data auxiliary tables of regional classifications are available: https://www.stat.fi/org/avoindata/paikkatietoaineistot/tilastoruudukko_1km_en.html.

Number of population by 1 km x 1 km grids. The number of population on the last day of the reference year (31 December) by age group. Data includes only inhabited grids. The statistical variables of the data are: Total population (vaesto), number of men (miehet) and women (naiset), under 15 year olds (ika_0_14), 1564 year olds (ika_15_64), and aged over 65 (ika_65_). Only the number of population is reported for grids of under 10 inhabitants. A grid identifier is expressed using a national identification code derived from the coordinates (idD_nro (num)) and INSPIRE's standard identification code (grd_id (char)). The data also contains the coordinates of the lower lefthand corner of a grid (xkoord, ykoord (num)). The data describes the population distribution independent of administrative areas (such as municipal borders). The data is suitable for examination of population distribution and making various spatial analysis. Data is available as polygons and as centroids of grid cells.

Paavo  Open data by postal code area contain the following geographic data: 1) Paavo postal code areas 2) Paavo postal code areas (extended to sea areas) 3) Paavo statistical data (103 variables) combined with the postal code areas There are two different versions of the map data: extending to sea areas mainly produced for statistics production, and the version produced from this for map visualisation cut with the coastline. The map data contain the surface areas of the postal code areas and the municipality codes defined for the postal code areas. The statistical data contain data on the 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. The statistical data are also available in the PxWeb database (http://pxnet2.stat.fi/PXWeb/pxweb/en/Postinumeroalueittainen_avoin_tieto/). The data are protected. Protected data are indicated with 1. New data are updated annually in January. The data descriptions can be found in this link: http://tilastokeskus.fi/tup/paavo/paavon_aineistokuvaukset_en.html.

Municipalitybased statistical units are municipalities, subregional units, regions, major regions, Regional State Administrative Agencies (AVI), Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY), electoral districts and working areas. Municipalitybased statistical units correspond to the regional divisions used in the statistics of the statistical reference year concerned. Annual versions and the latest regionally divided data (excluding the year attribute in the name of the data) are published from the data. Data used without the year attribute are updated automatically. The general Terms of Use must be observed when using the data: https://tilastokeskus.fi/org/lainsaadanto/copyright_en.html.

Location (x,y) and name of educational institutions. Statistical reference year 2020. Data includes a location and a name of every comprehensive and upper secondary level schools in Finland. The source of data is the yearly updated register of educational institutions (https://tilastokeskus.fi/tup/oppilaitosrekisteri/index_en.html) which is maintained by Statistics Finland. An educational institution is defined as an administrative unit as such not the school building or the operating place. Coordinates are mostly accurate based on the centroid of the building althought there exists some educational institutions with estimated coordinates. Estimations are based to the street address of the educational institutions. Validity (OLO): 0 = Valid 1 = Closed down during the statistical year 2 = Merged with another educational institution during the statistical year 3 = Educational institution removed from the educational institutions of the education system 6 = Educational institution had no activity during the statistical year 7 = Technical removal Type of educational institute (OLTYP): 11 = Comprehensive schools 12 = Comprehensive school level special education schools 15 = Upper secondary general schools 19 = Comprehensive and upper secondary level schools The general Terms of Use must be observed when using the data: http://tilastokeskus.fi/org/lainsaadanto/copyright_en.html. In addition to the national version, an INSPIRE information product is also available from the data.

Number of population by statistical units. The number of population on the last day of the reference year (31.12.). Statistical areas are municipalities, subregional units, regions, major regions, Regional State Administrative Agencies (AVI) and Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY). The statistical variables in the data are: total population (vaesto), share of the total population (vaesto_p), number of men (miehet), men's share of the population in an area (miehet_p) and women (naiset), women's share (naiset_p), those aged under 15: number (ika_0_14), share (ika_0_14p), those aged 15 to 64: number (ika_15_64), share (ika_15_64p), and aged 65 or over: number (ika_65_), share (ika_65_p). The data is suitable for the examination of population distribution and making various regional analyses.
