Statistics on real estate prices renewed

The statistical model, review procedures, weight structure and classifications used in the calculation of old single-family houses and single-family house plots have been renewed and the new base year is 2015=100. Due to the changes, retrospectively calculated series for 2015 and 2016 differ from the previously published data (2005=100 series and 1985=100 series). Because of methodological changes, the index series are not comparable with each other.
