Statistics Finland’s indices of owner-occupied housing prices consist of two index series.

The second one describes developments in the prices of all dwellings.
The index is based on data collected from housing companies and real estate prices. The calculation of the statistics is based on the Commission Regulation (EC) 93/2013.
