The annual statistics on rents of dwellings have been revised

The weight structure used in the annual statistics on rents of dwellings has been revised. In addition, instead of fixed price thresholds, distribution-based price thresholds are used. The calculation has been revised so that, when previously standardisation for quality was utilised in calculating changes in rents, now the annual change in rents is calculated based on the average rents for two successive years. The revised annual statistics has been calculated retrospectively also for the year 2011. A more detailed explanation concerning the changes is found in the quality description of the statistics.

As a result of the revisions, the average rents per square metre and change percentages differ slightly from the results of previously released annual statistics on rents of dwellings.
