However, it also corrected the previous month’s trend, saying it was 72.4 per cent instead of the 72.8 per cent previously reported.

“I’m a little blue-eyed: employment figures are subdued from September” Jukka Appelqvist, the chief economist of the Chamber of Commerce commented on Twitter. “The employment rate trend dropped back to pre-coronavirus levels, when it was believed to exceed the level already in August.”

The Finnish government has set a goal of raising the employment rate, ie the share of employed people aged 16–64, to 75 per cent by the end of the decade.

On Tuesday, Statistics Finland also revealed that the number of unemployed fell by 11,000 from a year ago, leaving the unemployment rate trend at 7.6 per cent.
