The quarterly statistics on rents of dwellings have been renewed

The handling and calculation of ARA dwellings has been harmonised with that of non-subsidised rental dwellings in the quarterly rent statistics starting from the first quarter of 2014.

Previously, only the dwellings where the rent had changed between the observation and reference periods were included in the index calculation for ARA dwellings. From now on, the change is calculated based on all findings for both non-subsidised rental dwellings and ARA dwellings.

 As a result of the revision, the number of ARA dwellings included in the calculation is higher than in the corresponding period last year. As a result of the methodological revision, the development of annual changes in ARA dwellings becomes revised to 0.2-0.3 percentage points faster relative to the comparison period.
