The Finnish National Agency for Education collects from education providers the cost and operational data on which the central government transfer for primary and secondary education is based, with the exception of the cost data for municipalities’ pre-primary and basic education and general upper secondary education, which are collected by the State Treasury. The Ministry of Education and Culture collects data on the operations, personnel and economic activities of universities of applied sciences and universities.
