Suomi 100 -logo

FSD celebrated the centenary of Finland's independence in 2017 by publishing a new theme page on the sixth day of each month. On the eve of the Independence Day, 5 December, we published a theme page entitled Life in the 100-year-old Finland, which features data collected in Finland in 2016, 2017 and 2018. These paint a picture of what Finland is like right now and what Finns think about different issues.
