Migration gain in the Helsinki region from elsewhere in Finland remained unchanged

In April–June, the migration gain in the Helsinki region from elsewhere in Finland was 3,200 people. Even though the migration gain was slightly lower than in the same period in the previous year, it is still double the average for 2010–2015. A total of 9,500 people moved to the Helsinki region, while 6,300 moved away.

In April–June, Helsinki’s migration gain from other parts of Finland was 1,950 people, Espoo’s 670, Vantaa’s 500 and KUUMA municipalities’ 130 people. Net migration only increased in Espoo compared to the previous year, and the relative decrease was the highest in the KUUMA municipalities.

The migration gain in the Helsinki region from elsewhere in Finland has remained almost unchanged in the first half of the year as in the first half of last year. The migration gain to Helsinki was, however, now 400 people smaller, but migration gain to Espoo, on the other hand, increased by 300. The migration gain to the KUUMA municipalities decreased by one fifth.
