Revisions in these statistics

The data of the statistics have become revised according to the table below. For more information about data revisions, see Section 3 of the quality description.

The larger revision than usual to the April data for Greater Helsinki was due to two reasons. The first release for April included a smaller share of the month's transactions than normal. In addition, more expensive transactions than in the old observations were obtained for March in connection with the most recent data.
