Finland - Data on poverty - January 01, 2017

Statistics published by the National Institute of Health and Welfare (THL) show that poverty has risen in recent years, especially among families with very young children. Five percent of children were found to be from families subsisting on basic social security alone in 2014, the year of the survey. The THL report shows that family poverty rate tripled in the twelve years from 1995 to 2007, and has remained at or around a stable 10 percent in the 2010s.
