Production interruption of the statistics on building and dwelling production continues – estimated data will be published on 19 May 2015

The production interruption of the statistics on building and dwelling production that began in January continues for the time being. Statistics Finland will, however, publish estimated data on building and dwelling production on 19 May 2015. Data will be published on granted building permits by use category, started building projects and volume of new building.

Statistics Finland has been unable to restart the production of data on the statistics on building and dwelling production yet because the Population Register Centre has not been able to deliver sufficiently extensive building register data to Statistics Finland used as the data source of the statistics. Statistics Finland and the Population Register Centre have been in tight cooperation to solve the problems but the material is still deficient for several municipalities.

Statistics Finland will correct the deficiencies in the data by statistical methods and publish estimated data for November to March on 19 May 2015. The statistics will return to the normal monthly release schedule as soon as the data delivery and systems are working properly.
