The statistics on prices of dwellings in housing companies have been renewed

 

The statistics on prices of dwellings in housing companies have been renewed. The revision concerns both monthly and quarterly statistics. In connection with the revision, the statistical model used in index calculations, price review procedures, weight structure and classifications have been updated. The base year of the quarterly statistics on new and old dwellings in housing companies has also been changed. The new base year is 2010.

Retrospective time series starting from 2010 have been calculated for both the monthly and quarterly indices based on the new calculation method. These backcasted series can to some extent differ from previously published indices for the respective time periods. Differences are generated particularly in regions where the number of observations is low. For the whole country, the differences are small.
