Population structure

This is interesting data.

What do people do in the Satakunta area (Rauma is just one of the towns in Satakunta, which makes up about 1/5 of the total population)?

40 percent of local Finns and 46 percent of local foreigners go to work.
21 percent of Finns study. 26 percent of foreigners in Satakunta spend time studying (maybe some came as exchange students).

Every third Finn is retired. We need more young people to work and pay taxes. Finland needs a foreign workforce.

Not so many foreigners are retired. Yet.

Out of the foreigners who live in Satakunta, 8 percent have not found a job. The percentage is 4 with Finns.
