Analysis of the vitality of the Tampere region

MDI will conduct an analysis of the vitality of the Tampere city region and the owner municipalities of Business Tampere (Tampere, Kangasala, Lempäälä, Nokia, Orivesi, Pirkkala, Vesilahti and Ylöjärvi). The analysis will be carried out continuously throughout 2024, utilising MDI’s and FCG’s developed Elinvoima, Vetovoima ja Pitovoima (EVP) index. The regional and municipal analysis includes an examination of the entire Tampere region’s position using the EVP index to compare it to other benchmark regions (maps and charts, verbal analysis). Additionally, there will be a separate analysis for each municipality (8 in total). In the municipality-specific analysis, the temporal development of the EVP index will be examined and the development of the variables influencing the index will be detailed. Furthermore, a separate analysis will be conducted to analyse the absolute and relative development of the municipality’s vitality and attractiveness and retention in relation to the overall development of the Tampere region and other benchmark municipalities. An automatically updating summary view of the EVP index will be provided to Business Tampere and interested municipalities as a PowerBI embed on Business Tampere’s website and potentially on the municipalities’ websites. The analyses will be compiled into easily readable PowerPoint reports so that Business Tampere and municipalities can utilise both the overall regional summary and the municipality-specific report in accordance with their needs. The analyses will be conducted in January 2024 and updates regarding changes in indicators will be undertaken again in August 2024.
