Erroneous data for statistics on indices of owner-occupied housing prices corrected

There were errors in the data for the second quarter of 2013 of the statistics on indices of owner-occupied housing prices released on 4 October 2013, which were corrected on 19 December 2013. The annual change in owner-occupiers' housing costs were incorrectly reported as 2.0 per cent. The corrected figure is 1.5 per cent.

As a result of the correction, the data of the overall owner-occupiers' housing costs index and its sub-index, purchasing of dwellings, pertaining to the second quarter have changed.

The errors were caused by a tabulation error in the calculation system. For this reason, the data of the statistics were not comparable with the earlier released quarters.
