Visitor analytics in city of Helsinki websites

Visitor analytics in city of Helsinki websites. The websites include, for example, the city’s main website hel.fi, the Youth Helsinki website that compiles the content for young people, the Helsinki Channel for webcasts and event recordings and the geographic data service kartta.hel.fi. Under Data and Resources, there is a list in CSV format of all the websites of the city for which visitor analytics is available.

The data contains information on, for example, the number of visitors to the website, the number of visits, the number of actions and the average time spent on the website. The data is obtained from Matomo, a web analytics monitoring tool.

The data is available for each month in three different files. The files are named with the year-month principle (YYYY-MM). The file is automatically updated daily at 02:00. The report contains data for the current month up to the previous day.

Data can be accessed by finding the desired month file in this directory: https://datastore.hri.fi/index.html?prefix=Helsinki/kanslia/kavijaanalytiikka/

For example, data from January 2022 can be downloaded from these links:
