New practice for disturbances in statistical releases

Statistics Finland's statistical data are released at 8 am on a pre-announced date. If the publication of statistics is delayed due to planned technical reasons, the delayed statistics will in future be released on the same day at noon.

“We want this change to clarify to users the release practices in case of disturbances and to ensure sufficient time to correct technical error situations,” says Reetta Moilanen, Head of Statistics.

If the release of the statistics is delayed, information about the delay and the new release time is given in the release calendar of the statistics and on Statistics Finland's front page. Subscribers to the news notifications receive the data of the statistics by email on the day following the publication.
