House price time-series

We collect house price time-series for 42 countries. For the rest of the world, reliable historical data is just not available.

In these 42 countries, by preference we use central bank or national statistical institute data. But occasionally, we use data generated by realtors (Colliers for the Philippines) or other data. Japan generates no dwelling price statistics, so we use land prices as a proxy for dwelling prices. It's no excuse, but everyone else does the same.


Few countries generate rentals time series. Since the number of countries is too small to be interesting, we don't collect this data.
