Accessibility of Finnish Regions (2009-2010)

The objective of this study for the Regional Development Unit of the Finnish Ministry of Employment and the Economy was to provide accessibility indicators for all municipalities and regions of Finland. Based on detailed raster-based data for population and jobs different accessibility indicators were calculated. The accessibility of population and jobs were determined on the one hand taking only Finland into account and on the other by using all European regions as destinations. The indicators were calculated for the years 2001 and 2006, thus enabling an analysis of the spatial dynamics.
