Nicaragua: Price/rent ratio

This ratio is typically used for measuring undervaluation/overvaluation of real estate prices, calculated by dividing the gross rental yield by 100 so the higher the yield, the lower the price/rent ratio.

Nicaragua has no house price statistics. The site of the Central Bank (Banco Central de Nicaragua) has quite good time-series, monthly and annual. Statistics are also published by the Instituto Nacional de Estad'sticas y Censos, but the site is somewhat eccentric, with many time-series apparently broken into two, 1990-1999, and 200-2002 ' and data only available in pdf format. There is also some statistical material in report format on the Ministerio de Econom'a y Finanzas site.
