The map shows the regional labour force (active population) as share of total population in the Arctic regions in 2016.

The active population includes all persons (aged 15 years old and over) with at least one current paid job or searching for one.

The dark green tones show regions with high participation rates and correspondingly light green tones show regions with low participation rates.

The Russian Arctic regions of Chukotka (83,6%), Yamalo-Nenets (78,0%), and Magadan (76,1%) had the highest participation rates. The lowest participation rates were in Lappi (Finland, 53,3%) and in Nordland (Norway, 59,9%).
