The data of Statistics Finland's statistics on local government finances show that the net costs of municipalities' operational economy grew by 2.9 per cent to EUR 33.8 billion in 2020. The growth was mainly due to the higher net costs directed at social and health care activities than in the year before. The net costs of social and health care activities were 4.2 per cent higher than one year previously and they totalled EUR 20.0 billion. Data for the compilation of the statistics on local government finances were collected from all 310 municipalities and 136 joint municipal authorities in Finland.
