Interruption in releasing statistics on prices of old dwellings in housing companies continues for the time being

The interruption in the release of statistics on prices of old dwellings in housing companies continues for the time being.

The price data of old dwellings in housing companies are based on the Tax Administration’s asset transfer tax statements. The reporting of the asset transfer tax changed in November 2019 and at the moment, due the Tax Administration's data system renewal, the coverage of data is not at a sufficient level for publishing the data. The publication of statistics will continue when the coverage of the data is better.

The revised statistics on new dwellings in housing companies will be published on 31 January 2020. The method used when calculating the indices, the weight structure and classification have been renewed and the base year of the index has been changed. The data were also retrospectively updated. The data content of the statistics changes and the indices and prices per square metre will be published at a more accurate level than before. Retrospective time series from 2015 onwards (2015=100) according to the new calculation method will be published for the indices of new dwellings in housing companies.
