Methode and aim of calculation

Pursuant to the Act on the basis of which the index is announced, the price of 1m2 of usable floor space of a (residential) building is understood as average outlays for the whole country incurred by investors for the construction of multi-dwelling buildings per 1 m2 of the usable floor space of a building, calculated as an average weighted by usable floor space of residential buildings completed in particular voivodships.

 

An index is established on the basis of outlays incurred by investors in construction of new residential buildings, excluding one-dwelling buildings (see methodological description). It is calculated only for purposes determined in Act of 30 November 1995 on the State aid in the repayment of some housing credits, granting guarantee premiums and refundations of the paid guarantee premiums to the banks (homogenous text: Journal of Laws from 2003 No 119, item 1115 – with later amendments) as well as is also made of use in other acts referring to the index (see methodological description). Therefore, it can not be made of use as a price of square meter of usable floor space of residential buildings completed or for analysis such prices offered in housing market.

Beginning from II quarter of 2002 this index is announced by the President of the Central Statistical Office in Official Journal of the CSO; former, successively: by the President of the State Office for Housing and Urban Development, Ministry of the Physical Planning and Construction and the President of the National Bank of Poland – in Official Journal of the Republic of Poland –“Monitor Polski”.
