Statistics Finland has renewed 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 was 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 was improved, as a result of which transactions of old dwellings in housing companies can be differentiated in future better than before from the transactions of new dwellings.

The methodological renewal also 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 are used for these.

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