Statistics Finland, preliminary population statistics
Now you have come to the page, Choose variable. This page give you the oportunity to select which variables and values you want to display in your result of the table. A variable is a property of a statistical unit. The page is divided into several boxes, one for each variable, where you can select values by click to highlight one or more values. It always starts with the statistics variable which is the main value counted in the table.

The rapid estimate data on the number of deaths per week are not comparable with the corresponding figures for earlier years as concerns the latest published weeks. This is due to a shorter waiting period of rapid estimate data than in normal statistics production. The data for the two latest published weeks are incomplete in terms of the number of cases. Data on deaths are updated to the Population Information System at a delay. Around 55 to 60 per cent of deaths in the past week have been reported to the system and around 85 to 90 per cent of deaths in the week prior to that when the rapid estimate statistics on deaths are run.
Statistics Finland releases the weekly number of deaths once a month for the time being. The statistics provide a rapid estimate on the development of the number of deaths. The two-week delay in the statistics is caused by the information on deaths being stored at a delay in the Population Information System maintained by the Digital and Population Data Services Agency. The numbers of deaths in the table are based on final statistics for 1990 to 2021 and on preliminary data for 2022. Preliminary data for 2022 will be revised whenever data for the following week are published. Due to the short waiting period, data for the most recent weeks are incomplete and they are supplemented at each update round. The number of deaths varies much by week. There are customarily more deaths in winter months than in other seasons. The number of deaths over one week has varied between 800 to 1,300 in 1990 to 2021. The figures in the table have not been proportioned, so conclusions should not be made from them on the development of mortality. As the population ages, the number of deaths grows, although in relative terms, mortality will decrease and life expectancy will lengthen.


These statistics apply the regional division of 1 January 2022.
