The Union contracts a professional research company (TNS Gallup) and asks a certain amount of members to fill in a form and answer questions concerning their employer`s type (newspaper, tv, etc.), their contract type (fulltime, part-time etc) and their monthly salary. The Union thereby collects useful data on the pay level in the media sector. This survey is conducted every two years, so that changes can be detected. The collected data are regularly published. According to the data there are more women journalists in Finland than men. The amount of women is rising. At the same time the percentage of unemployed among women journalists is higher than the percentage of unemployed among all journalists.
