KUUMA municipalities gained inhabitants from the Helsinki metropolitan area more than before

In April–June, the migration gain to the KUUMA municipalities from the Helsinki metropolitan area grew to 750 people. The migration gain increased especially because more people moved to the area from the Helsinki metropolitan area. According to preliminary data, the migration loss in Helsinki was 340 people, in Vantaa 130 people and in Espoo 220 people.

Traditionally, Helsinki has been the biggest loser in migration within the region. The KUUMA municipalities have had migration gain from the Helsinki metropolitan area throughout the 2000s, but the net migration decreased in 2007–2016. Movement between the Helsinki metropolitan area and KUUMA municipalities became livelier in 2017, and the migration gain to the KUUMA municipalities from the Helsinki metropolitan area took an upward turn. Now the rate has accelerated.
