Official Statistics of Finland

Official Statistics of Finland (OSF or SVT in Finnish) are a comprehensive collection of statistics describing the development and state of society. They comprise nearly 300 sets of statistics on 26 different topics, and are produced by 12 expert organisations in the field of public administration. Luke is one of these organisations. We produce about forty OSF statistics.

The OSF statistics are marked with the following logo:

The basic data of the Official Statistics of Finland are available to all users free of charge.

They guarantee the continuation of statistics and are committed to common quality criteria. The OSF quality criteria are compatible with the quality criteria of the European Statistical System (ESS).

Compliance with the quality criteria is monitored by the Advisory Board of Official Statistics of Finland. It also has the task of developing the statistical system and the dissemination of statistics.
