The quarterly statistics on rents of dwellings have been renewed

The calculation of the quarterly statistics on rents of dwellings has been changed so that price ratios are formed based on the euro-denominated observation and reference period rents of the same dwelling. Price ratios for new observations in the data are formed by using a statistical model with which the euro-denominated rent is estimated for the dwelling for the reference period. Average rents per square metre are calculated by increasing the euro-denominated average rents per square metre of the annual rent statistics by the quarterly change indicated in the quarterly rent statistics. The renewed quarterly statistics have been calculated retrospectively for the years 2010 to 2012.

As a result of changes, average rents per square metre and change percentages differ slightly from the previously published results of the quarterly statistics on rents.
