Finance and renovation building of housing corporations

Description of the data collection

In the data collection on the finance and renovation building of housing corporations, information is requested in connection with renovation building of housing corporations as well as financial statements of housing corporations. Only questions concerning renovation building are asked of small housing companies. Questions about total renovation costs divided into annual repairs and renovations, as well as into Greater Helsinki and the rest of the country, if necessary, are asked of the biggest government-subsidised housing companies with a separate data collection. Data are collected from the managers of the housing companies included in the sample. The managers can supply the data on the companies they represent either with a web form or with a paper form.

From whom are data collected?

The population of the inquiry includes all housing companies with at least one terraced house or one block of flats as well as the biggest government-subsidised housing companies. The sampling frame of housing companies is formed based on the real estate register. The total area of dwellings from the register of buildings and dwellings is linked to the formed framework. The sample unit is the housing company according to the Business ID.

The inquiry concerns housing companies with a combined area of residential dwellings of at least 700 m2 (blocks of flats) or 500 m2 (terraced houses). The sample for the statistics is drawn from the real estate register of the Tax Administration. In 2017, the population consisted of some 88,000 companies of which around 43,000 met the requirement for the combined area of residential dwellings. The annual sample size is approximately 4,000 housing corporations, of which 1,000 housing corporations answer only about renovation building.
