Kela's Info Tray

Kela’s Info Tray brings together the research and statistics produced by Kela. We provide a wide range of up-to-date information for national, regional and local needs. The service is intended for everyone interested in Kela data.

Kela as an information provider

The entire operations of Kela are based on information. We use information to make benefit decisions, to provide guidance and advice on social security matters and to improve our services and make sure that they are useful and accessible. We produce research, statistics, information materials and open data.

At Kela, we want our information to benefit society as a whole as much as possible. We provide information to support public decision-making and the organisation of services provided by other authorities. We participate in legislative development in order to dismantle barriers to data mobility.
