House Prices/GDP per Capita in Malta compared to Europe
Malta: House price to income ratio
The house price to income ratio is the ratio of the cost of a typical upscale housing unit of 100 square metres, compared to the countrys GDP per capita. Normally this ratio will be much higher in low income countries than in high income countries.
The formula is: (Price per square metre / GDP per capita)*100. The house price to income ratios published by the Global Property Guide are based on the Global Property Guides own proprietary in-house research, but we use the IMFs GDP per capita figures.
Malta's Central Bank generates annual and quarterly house price indices. The European Central Bank also has a quarterly residential property price index for Malta. General economics statistics also come from the Central Bank of Malta, and the National Statistics Office.
