Which information can I find here?

This section covers the following statistics:

  • House Price Index (HPI): This measures the changes in the transaction prices of residential properties, both newly built and existing, purchased by households;  
  • House sales: This covers the total value of dwellings transactions at national level (both houses and flats) where the purchaser is a household and complements the HPI to offer a more comprehensive picture of the housing market;  
  • Owner-Occupied Housing Price Index (OOHPI): This measures the changes in the transaction prices of dwellings purchased for own-use and the cost of all goods and services that households purchase in their role as owners-occupiers of dwellings.

For more information, please see 'Information on data' in this section.
