National income contracted by 2 per cent in real terms
Net national income grew by 1.5 per cent in nominal terms, but contracted by 2 per cent real terms last year, and was EUR 30,070 per capita. Finland’s gross national income was EUR 194 billion, i.e. the same as GDP. Gross national income fell by 1.6 per cent in real terms, i.e. more than gross domestic product because the terms of trade weakened and primary income from abroad decreased.
Households’ wage and salary income went up by 3.2 per cent and employers’ social insurance contributions by 2.6 per cent. Altogether, compensation of employees rose to 61.2 per cent of the national income. The respective proportion in the previous year was 60.3 per cent. Property and entrepreneurial income in the national economy decreased by 3.9 per cent and their share of the national income stood at 23.3 per cent. The respective proportion in the previous year was 24.7 per cent.
