New BIS Data Report on Property Prices


The BIS has launched a new data series on worldwide property prices.  Available here.
The property price statistics bring together data from a variety of national sources. The BIS, with the assistance of its member central banks,  has obtained approval of these sources to disseminate the  statistics as long as the national sources are clearly indicated. The sources and any relevant disclaimers are listed separately (sources of data). Copyright in these data must be honoured. 

The property price statistics include data from 37 countries, and are available at different frequencies. The dataset is updated at the end of each month. The data differ significantly from country to country, for instance in terms of type of property, area covered, property vintage, priced unit and seasonal adjustment. This reflects the fact that there are currently no specific international standards for property price statistics
