Sweden: Economic freedom index, 5-year change
Increased economic freedom is strongly associated with high GDP growth, and therefore with rises in residential property prices. Changes in a countrys score on the Heritage Foundations freedom index are calculated by the Global Property Guide to produce a 5-point rating:
- Greatly Improved
- Much Worse

Sweden publishes excellent house price time-series. Statistics Sweden's web-site is a treasure-trove of data, and each new approach the user makes seems to yield different housing time-series, both annual and quarterly, generated by the National Statistical Institute. The same site also publishes general economic data.
