Data on the wage and salary indices for April 2020 are published using Incomes Register data

Statistics Finland publishes wage and salary indices for April 2020 in June 2020. Data obtained directly from the Incomes Register are used as source data. Previously, the Tax Administration supplied the data to Statistics Finland. Starting from January 2020, the data have been recalculated from the Incomes Register data. Due to the change, the data for 2020 may become revised.

The data for 2019 in the Incomes Register can be updated for the whole year, while previously the wage and salary sum data were updated in the statistics only for seven to nine latest months. Due to the calculation method, this may cause changes in the data for 2020 when newer data are available for the comparison year as well.

Further information about the introduction of the Incomes Register available in Statistics Finland's news item.
