The MoniSuomi study produces information on the health and well-being of the adult population living in Finland, who were born abroad. The data were collected in 2022 and 2023 using a questionnaire form. A random sample of 18,600 foreign-born people with foreign backgrounds aged 20 to 74 was selected for the study, and the sample submitted 7,838 responses.
