Price indices of dwellings in housing companies are revised

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

The revised indices will be published starting from data concerning the first quarter of 2015. Monthly indices for January to February are first published using the old calculation method and then revised based on the new calculation method in connection with the release for the first quarter. Retrospective time series starting from 2010 will be calculated for both the monthly and quarterly indices based on the new calculation method.
