Supplementary notes

This question was phrased by the source as follows: "Kuinka arvioit koronavirustilanteen vaikuttavan yrityksesi toimintaan ja taloudelliseen tilanteeseen nykytiedon perusteella?"

The source adds the following information: "Note that the survey results reflect the situation before the companies knew about the emergency conditions declared by the Finnish government. Every passing day has further aggravated the situation for companies."

Percentage points exceeding 100 percent are probably due to rounding.
