Price indices of dwellings in housing companies are revised

The statistics on prices of dwellings in housing companies are revised starting from data concerning the first quarter of 2018. The revised indices will be published on 2 May 2018. The revision concerns monthly and quarterly statistics on old dwellings in housing companies. In connection with the revision, the statistical model used in index calculations, review procedures, weight structure and classifications are updated. The new base year will be 2015. Retrospective time series based on the updated method are calculated from the indices starting from 2015

Monthly indices for January to February 2018 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.

The changes do not concern the statistics on new units in housing companies.
