PROVINCE'91 population

To illustrate the main ideas, a small data set under the title Province’91 has been taken from the official statistics of Finland. This data set will be used as a sampling frame in Chapters 2 to 4. Finland is divided into 14 provinces from which one has been selected for demonstration. This province comprises 32 municipalities and had a total population of 254 584 inhabitants on 31 December, 1991. The data set is presented in Table 2.1. See pages 18-19 in Lehtonen, R. & Pahkinen, E. (2004)
