Release Information

The Central Bank of Italy reports bi-annual data on housing prices at the country level. The data set includes average house of all dwellings, rented residences, and owner occupied homes. Figures are in Euros and are not seasonally adjusted (NSA)

The Survey on Household Income and Wealth (SHIW) began in the 1960s with the aim of gathering data on the incomes and savings of Italian households. Over the years, the scope of the survey has grown and now includes wealth and other aspects of households' economic and financial behavior such as which payment methods are used.

The sample used in the most recent surveys comprises about 8,000 households (20,000 individuals), from about 350 Italian municipalities. Individuals answer a basic questionnaire. The questionnaire has been virtually unchanged through the years. In the questionnaire there are questions about choice of work, donations, inheritance, local taxation, and economic policy impact.

The value of housing is a subjective estimate of the price at which the property could be sold if unoccupied.

Data is subject to revisions.
