Statistics Finland renews the calculation of the numbers of transactions of old dwellings in housing companies

 

The calculation of the numbers of transactions of old dwellings in housing companies is renewed in connection with the release of the first quarter of 2016. In the renewal, the joint use of transaction data and various register data has been improved, as a result of which transactions of old dwellings in housing companies can be differentiated better than before from the transactions of new targets.

The methodological renewal has an impact on the yearly published transaction sum data of old dwellings in housing companies, and on the quarterly published prices per square metre by post code. In future, data according to the new method will be used for these.

Comparable time series are produced with the renewed method on all the data to be published.
