Data on crime available on new theme page of FSD

FSD continues to celebrate the centenary of Finland’s independence by publishing new data theme pages monthly.

This month, however, the theme is not the most festive one; some half a million crimes are reported to the police in Finland annually. Although the crime rate in Finland is relatively low, and Finland was recently named the safest country in the world by the World Economic Forum, crime, criminality and public safety remain subject to a great deal of research.

The new theme page lists individual datasets and data series suited for research on crime from the perspectives of both victims and offenders. The page features the most recent datasets on the subject as well as some older data selected by the FSD staff.

New theme pages are published around the sixth of each month during 2017. On the eve of the Independence Day, 5 December, a special theme page entitled Life in a 100-year-old Finland will be published. The page will feature data collected in Finland in recent years, illustrating what Finland is currently like and what Finns think about different issues.
