When the monthly statistics on prices of dwellings are published they cover approximately 40 per cent of all transactions made in the latest statistical month. Monthly data become revised during the following months so that the final data for the year are published in the release concerning the first quarter of the following year. The base year of the monthly index is 2010.

Data by area starting from 2010 are available in the StatFin service: http://pxnet2.stat.fi/PXWeb/pxweb/fi/StatFin/StatFin__Asu__ashi/?tablelist=true in Finnish only.

The deviations between the results of the monthly and quarterly statistics are caused by that the monthly statistics are produced with a less detailed regional division and the monthly statistics have a different weight structure than the quarterly statistics. The base year of the quarterly index is 2005.
