CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

The established house price index currently covers detached houses in the eight capital cities. To complement the established house price index, new experimental price indexes have been developed for other dwellings in the capital cities and for all dwellings in the capital cities. This publication includes a feature article which provides some information about the development of the new price indexes and a data cube with a time series of the new indexes.


REVISIONS

Estimates for the two most recent quarters of the HPI series are preliminary and subject to revision (see paragraphs 15 to 19 of the Explanatory Notes).
