Poland: Property rights index
A subcomponent of the Index of Economic Freedom, the property rights index measures the degree to which a countrys laws protect private property rights, and the degree to which its government enforces those laws.
Higher scores are more desirable, i.e. property rights are better protected. Scores are from 0 to 100.
The index also assesses the likelihood that private property will be expropriated and analyzes the independence of the judiciary, the existence of corruption within the judiciary, and the ability of individuals and businesses to enforce contracts.
The Global Property Guide considers protection of property rights as a significant factor affecting the desirability of a residential real estate investment.
Poland does not publish official house price statistics. The Central Statistical Office has a ï¿½house priceï¿½ index which is really a construction cost index. REAS Konsulting produces house price figures, but they are not publicly available. There are quite good mortgage interest rate statistics on the Central Bank web site
Polandï¿½s general economics data are of poor quality. The GDP statistics available on the Central Statistical Office site tend to be old. However good general statistics in pdf format are available on the back pages of Macroscope, a publication of Bank Zachodni WBK.
