Development of a definitive House Price Index
This consultation has concluded
Detail of outcome
This consultation ran from
Seeking views on how the proposed methodology for a new definitive house price index meets requirements for official house price data.
This consultation was held on another website.
Currently, there are a number of official statistics covering house prices in the UK. These different statistics are published by:
· Land and Property Services, Northern Ireland
· Land Registry
· Office for National Statistics
· Registers of Scotland
The purpose of this joint consultation is to provide details of the proposed methodology for a single definitive House Price Index (HPI), and to gather your views on whether it meets your requirements. We would also like to know how removing the indices currently published by Land Registry and ONS would affect you. Please note that the UK Statistics Authority is assessing the potential new definitive UK House Price Index against the Code of Practice for Official Statistics as it is developed.
