Starting from 26 August 2011, data are also released monthly on the statistics on prices of dwellings. The data are published one month from the end of the statistical reference month. The base year of the monthly statistics is 2010=100 and the data are published starting from the beginning of 2010.
The statistics on prices of dwellings describe the unencumbered prices per square metre of old dwellings in housing companies, and monthly, quarterly and annual changes in them.
The monthly statistics apply a less detailed regional division than the quarterly statistics, because the number of dwelling transactions is lower. The area categories are: whole country, Greater Helsinki, rest of Finland (whole country exclusive of Greater Helsinki), satellite municipalities (Hyvinkää, Järvenpää, Kerava, Riihimäki, Kirkkonummi, Nurmijärvi, Sipoo, Tuusula, Vihti), Helsinki, Espoo-Kauniainen, Vantaa, Tampere, Turku, Oulu and major regions Southern Finland, Western Finland, Eastern Finland, and Northern Finland.
The statistics on prices of dwellings become revised so that the final data concerning the whole year are published in connection with the release for the first quarter of the year following the statistical reference year.
