Migration gain in the Helsinki region from elsewhere in Finland decreased

In January–March, the migration gain in the Helsinki region from elsewhere in Finland was 850 people. Migration gain decreased considerably in comparison to the same period of the previous year due to a sharp increase in emigration. A total of 7,270 people moved to the Helsinki region, while 6,420 moved away.

In January–March, Helsinki’s migration gain from other parts of Finland was 500 people, Vantaa’s 390 and Espoo’s 90. In the KUUMA municipalities net migration turned negative at -130 people. Compared to the same quarter of the previous year, migration gain grew only in Vantaa.

The migration gain of the Helsinki region from elsewhere in Finland decreased last year by 150 people, but it still remains at a higher level than at the beginning of the decade. The KUUMA municipalities have been losing residents to municipalities outside the region throughout the 2000s, and the migration loss grew during the last year.
