How is the survey conducted?

Survey type

The source of these indices is data that is already available at the CBS. So, individual perception is unnecessary. The basic material for these statistics is derived from data registered by municipalities, originating from building permits they have issued for new homes.

Sequential comparability

Within one reference period the results of the statistics temporarily follow similar. The subsequent comparability of series with different reference periods has a more indicative character.
