Women flee Finnish countryside, some regions’ female populations down by a third

Several Finnish regions have lost a large proportion of their young women in a short space of time, according to figures from Statistics Finland.

In Kainuu and South Savo, the number of women aged between 15 and 44 has dropped by a third since 2001. In Kymenlaakso and Satakunta the reduction is around a fifth, and similar but less severe drops are recorded elsewhere in the country too.

“The change has been pretty steep in a short space of time,” said Timo Aro of the regional development consultancy MDI. Source YLE
