Data collection methods and data sources

The data on transaction prices are obtained from the real estate register of the National Land Survey of Finland and these are combined with data from the real estate information system of the Population Register Centre. Due to low number of transaction, large price fluctuations and the used statistical methodology, the indices are published by a less detailed regional division than prices of dwellings. Detailed information about realised prices of real estate transactions is available from the real estate transaction register of the National Land Survey of Finland (Web Slice in Finnish, http://www.maanmittauslaitos.fi/kauppahintatilastot), tel. +358 29 530 1110.
