The Finnish Election Study Portal contains information on elections, citizens’ political participation and political attitudes in Finland. Core information is provided by democracy indicators which enable monitoring the development and state of Finnish democracy. For the time being, the indicators are available in Finnish only.

The portal provides a single point of access to key election and election research data both for Finnish and foreign users. As the portal is still under development, it currently focuses mainly on parliamentary elections data.

Developing democratic processes, as well as monitoring and evaluating the state of democracy are important goals in Finnish society. This web site has been developed with funding from the Ministry of Justice. The Finnish Social Science Data Archive, the national Election Study Consortium and the Ministry of Justice have all provided information resources for the site. Linked resources have been provided, for instance, by Statistics Finland and the National Audit Office.
