Table description


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

Status of the figures:
The figures of the wages and the total building costs are definite until the year 2019. The building materials are definite until March 2020.

Changes as of September 30, 2020:
Figures of Augustus 2020 have been added and the figures of the building materials of March 2020 have become definite.

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.
