Rebasing the Output Price Index of newly built dwellings, 2005=100 - Netherlands (2009)

Statistics Netherlands calculates a quarterly output price index of newly built dwellings (O-PINW) to monitor developments in the prices of newly built dwellings in the Netherlands. Starting from the figures for the first quarter of 2009, the O-PINW is published with 2005 as the new reference year (2005=100). This paper examines the changes involved in the base shift, and the differences between the index series based on 2000=100 and 2005=100.
