Statistics on discrimination
The Fundamental Rights Barometer
The Fundamental Rights Barometer (published 2021) is a research project carried out by the Ministry of Justice and the Human Rights Centre, which examined the views and experiences of people with disabilities or functional limitations as well as people belonging to linguistic minorities (Russian, Arabic and Swedish-speakers) on fundamental rights.
The barometer is based on an online survey prepared by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights. The barometer’s survey was carried out by Taloustutkimus in 2019, and the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) was responsible for the report’s statistics.
The results of the Fundamental Rights Barometer cannot be fully generalised, as the share of respondents to the survey is low for some respondent groups. The share of respondents who have not responded is also high in many respondent groups.
The Results from the Fundamental Rights Barometer tool has been produced as part of the project Know Equality, supported by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship (REC) Programme of the European Union (2014-2020).
