Preliminary figures
To improve the timeliness of the statistics, the information on self-employed persons utilized here is from 2019, the year prior to the reference year 2020. The mismatch in time of measurement, results in some uncertainty in these preliminary figures. The statistics is updated with final figures when information on self-employed persons from the reference year is available. For more information, see the section «Frequency and timeliness» under «Administrative information» in «About the statistics».
Priority labour force status
For persons enrolled in multiple activities/benefits simultaneously, their status is prioritized in the following order (top to bottom): employed, registered unemployed, participant in labor market measures, in ordinary education, recipient of work assessment allowance, recipient of disability benefits, recipient of contractual early retirement pension, recipient of retirement pension, other (for example social assistance or unknown status). This priority means, for example, that a person who is both in regular education and receiving disability benefits is considered as in regular education in the statistics. For more information, see 'About the statistics.'
