The housing costs of owner-occupied dwellings consist of the prices of new dwellings purchased by households and other costs of owner-occupied dwellings, like renovations. The second, housing prices series describes the price development of all dwellings. The index is based on the data in the statistics on prices of units in housing companies and real estate prices. The calculation of the statistics is based on Commission Regulation (EC) 93/2013.
