Release Information

Dwelling stock provides data on all dwellings on the territory of Slovenia by age, quality and size. The survey is the basis for economic and social analyses by government offices for monitoring the national housing policy, since investment in dwellings improves the economic and social development in the country.

Sources The balance of the dwelling stock is a combination of data on dwellings collected with the Census of Population, Households and Housings in the Republic of Slovenia in 2011 and data collected with regular statistical reports. Data on newly obtained dwellings are estimates, calculated on the basis of the Monthly Questionnaire on Buildings Permits (GRAD-GD/M) and Monthly Questionnaire on Safety Permits (GRAD-UD/M). Data on dwellings which are no longer used for residence are collected with the Monthly Questionnaire on Demolition Permits for Changing the Purpose of the Dwelling (GRAD-RS/M).

Coverage Covered are all dwellings on the territory of Slovenia (occupied, unoccupied, for occasional use). As a rule, we cover only completed dwellings in which all construction, installation and finishing works were performed. Exceptionally, the census covered also unfinished dwellings if households already used them for permanent habitation. Only the part of the dwelling which was used for habitation was taken into account, irrespective of the degree to which the building was completed. Results are shown according to the 2011 methodology, which takes into account dwellings used only occasionally (for leisure and recreation or for seasonal work in agriculture). The dwelling stock does not cover business premises, shacks, cellars, etc., used for habitation and collective accommodations (e.g. boarding schools). Dwellings owned by foreign countries and dwellings for tourism were also not covered.

Methodological differences For 1999-2001 the results comprised only occupied and unoccupied dwellings, without data on dwellings used only occasionally (for leisure and recreation or for seasonal work in agriculture). From 2002 on the results comprise occupied and unoccupied dwellings as well as data on dwellings used only occasionally. For 2011 Census the basis was administrative registers instead of data collected in the field based on the residents' statements.

Definitions A dwelling is any structurally unified whole intended for residence, with one or more rooms, with or without appropriate utility spaces (kitchen, larder, hallway, bathroom, toilet) and with at least one separate entrance.Year of construction of the dwelling is determined by the year in which the building was constructed. For damaged or almost demolished buildings which were later on reconstructed, the year of reconstruction is taken into account. Data on the water supply, sewage, electricity and central heating for each dwelling were collected. A dwelling is considered to be equipped if at least one room has the water supply, sewage, electricity and central heating installation, irrespective of whether a connection to a network or some other facility is provided. Auxiliary spaces in a dwelling are the bathroom, toilet and kitchen. Useful floor space of a dwelling is the sum of useful floor space of rooms, kitchens and other auxiliary spaces (bathroom, toilet, hallway, entrance hall) and space of enclosed terraces and verandas. The space of the room and kitchen which are architecturally separated from the dwelling but are used as a part of the dwelling all the year round is also taken into account. The area of open terraces and balconies, architecturally separated auxiliary spaces, garages, cellars and attics unsuitable for living is not taken into account. Average floor space of a dwelling is the ratio between the sum of useful floor space of all dwellings and the number of all dwellings. Average floor space per person is the ratio between the sum of useful floor space of all dwellings and the number of all residents as of 31 December (see definitions of population in the Statistical Yearbook of the Republic of Slovenia, Chapter 4, or Average number of persons per dwelling is the ratio between the number of all residents as of 31 December and the number of all dwellings. A room is an interior space separated from others by permanent walls, which receives direct daylight and has an area of at least six square meters. The kitchen is not counted as a room. One-room dwellings comprise: separate rooms, bedsits and one-room dwellings. A separate room is a dwelling with a room, with no kitchen or bathroom. It may have a hallway, toilet or larder, but only if the area of such auxiliary interiors does not exceed six square meters. A bedsit is a dwelling with a room, hallway and bathroom and which may have a small kitchen (up to four square meters of area). A one-room or multi-room dwelling has one or more rooms, which may have a kitchen and has other auxiliary interiors with an area greater than six square meters.

Since the data are filled in the multi-annual matrix, the revisions are available only every 3 years.
