The number of foreigners living in Finland in September 2013 increased by 6.8% over the previous year to 205 250, about 3.5% of the population. The largest groups were, as in preceeding years, Estonians (43 400), Russians (30 700) and Swedes (8 500). An estimated 130 000 foreigners work in Finland, about 80 000 permanently. The top foreign nationalities working permanently in Finland are from Estonia, the Russian Federation, Sweden, China, Thailand and Germany. Temporary workers, estimated at 50 000, are mainly from Estonia and other EU countries close to Finland. It appears that cross border commuting has been increasing.
