This table contains monthly figures on the input price index of new dwellings; input price indices building costs to monitor the costs of new dwellings (labour and materials) in the Netherlands.

An input price index is determined on the basis of price changes of the various cost components making up the product - in this case a new dwelling.
Changes in the prices of building equipment (tools and machinery), general costs, profit and risk are not included in the input price 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.

Data available from: January 2012 to December 2023

Status of the figures:
The figures of the wages and total building costs are definite up to and including the year 2022.
The figures of the building materials are definite up to and including six months from the most recent reported month.
The data for 2023 is provisional. Since this table has been discontinued, the data is no longer finalized.

Changes as of February 29, 2024
The index number series in this table use 2015 as the reference year (2015=100). To ensure that the results of the index series are more in line with current events, a so-called base shift is implemented once every five years. Due to the implementation of FRIBS (Framework Regulation Integrating Business Statistics) in 2021, this time the base shift is postponed by one year to 2021=100. The subsequent base shift will return to a regular year, namely 2025=100. Upon the publication of the reporting period of January 2024, such a base shift will occur, and the reference year will be switched to 2021 (2021=100). The index series with the reference 2021=100 will be published in new StatLine tables. This table will be discontinued from that moment and will no longer be updated. However, it will remain available in the archive. The new tables for 2021=100 will commence with the reporting month of January 2018.

Changes as of March 11, 2024
This table has been discontinued. This table is followed by New dwellings; input price indices building costs 2021=100. See paragraph 3.

Description topics

Input price indices
Input price indices are based on producers’ costs. Input price indices of new dwellings relate to the prices of labour and building materials. The series is calculated from changes in labour prices in construction and costs of materials used in residential building.

Changes in the prices of building equipment (tools and machinery), general costs, profit and risk are not included in the input price index.
Changes compared to one year earlier
Year-on-year change, expressed as a percentage. The price index of a period compared with the price index of the same period one year earlier.

The year-on-year changes of the price indices of the series 2010=100 is calculated based on unrounded price indices. The percentages mentioned in the table from 1990 with 2000 as base year are based on rounded price indices until review period January 2013. Therefore the year-on-year development can differ from the percentages provided in this table. From 2013 on, the year-on-year developments in both tables are calculated on unrounded price indices.
