New dwellings; input price indices building costs, 2005 - 2012


Statistics Netherlands calculates the monthly input index of building costs for new dwellings to monitor developments in the price level of new dwellings in the Netherlands. The main cost components in the construction of a new dwelling are the costs for wages and materials. Other cost components such as energy and transport are not taken into account because their influence on the final cost price is relatively modest. Land costs are also not included in the index.
Starting with the figures of January 2009, the input index is published with 2005 as new base year. At the same time the name has changed. The new series will be calculated ex post from January 2005 onwards. As a result of the rebasing the weighting schemes are adjusted to the situation of 2008.
