Table description


The historical series 'New dwellings; input price indices of building costs 2000 = 100, from 1990' shows the development of the costs (wages and materials) involved in building new dwellings in the Netherlands, and has become available by linking series which were calculated separately in the past.
An input price index is based on price changes in several cost components involved in realising a product, in this case a new dwelling. Changes in other cost components such as building equipment (tools and machines), general costs, profits and risk are not included in the index. Other cost components, such as energy and transport, are also not taken into account as their influence on the final cost price is relatively modest. Land costs are also not included in the index.

From 1990 to December 1994 only figures of the materials are available.
From 1995 onwards this series also includes wage figures. Also from 1995, figures are also available on total building costs by weighted aggregetion of these two series.

Data available from:
- Materials: January 1990
- Wages: January 1995
- Total building costs: January 1995

Status of the figures:
The figures of the wages, the building materials and the total building costs are definite until the year 2021.
The figures of the building materials are definite up to and including six months from the most recent reported month.

Changes as of November 30th, 2022:
Figures of October 2022 have been added. The figures of the building materials of May have become definite.

When will new figures be published?
New figures will be published at the end of December 2022.

Description topics

Total building costs
These price indices are composed (weighted) of wages and material
components.
Changes compared to one year earlier
Monthly changes are calculated compared with the same month in the previous year. Annual changes are calculated compared with the previous year.
Wages
The wages index is based on changes in labour prices in construction, specifically construction of dwellings and commercial and industrial buildings.
Changes compared to one year earlier
Monthly changes are calculated compared with the same month in the previous year. Annual changes are calculated compared with the previous year.
Building materials
The material index shows the development of the costs of building
materials used in an avarage dwelling.
Changes compared to one year earlier
Monthly changes are calculated compared with the same month in the previous year. Annual changes are calculated compared with the previous year.
