Autor: División de Estadísticas , División de Política Financiera


As from issue number 50, the Series of Economic Studies of the Central Bank of Chile will be called Studies in Economic Statistics.

This document presents the methodology and main results of the construction of a housing price index for Chile (HPI) by the Central Bank of Chile. The HPI is built on the basis of unnamed administrative records of the Internal Revenue Service, corresponding to actual transactions of dwellings at the national level. The index considers openings by type of property (houses and apartments) and geographic areas. The HPI will be released semiannually, starting from the publication of this document.
