Data Change: Singapore - Res available or vacant - Redefined
Tuesday, 16 May 2017 19:47 ET
By Annie Kao, Jacky Cheung
February 2017 -- The category breakdown for "private residential properties available or vacant" (table M400841) has been changed by the source from type of structure to landed/non-landed (10 quarterly series 1993-2016, replaced by four from 1988).

In response, we have archived the predecessors (1993Q2 to 2016Q3) by marking their metadata as "discontinued" and by segregating in the catalog. The replacements start at 1988Q1. Figures are number of units end of period (# EOP) not seasonally adjusted (NSA).

The series reside in the historical catalog (Singapore » Real Estate » Residential » Private residential properties available or vacant) and include, for example:

  • HSQARESSDTUQ.ISGP = [DISCONTINUED] Available Private Residential Properties - Semi-Detached Houses, (# Of Units End Of Period)
  • HSQVRESCDOUQ.ISGP = [DISCONTINUED] Vacant Private Residential Properties - Condominium Units
  • HSQARESLDNUQ.ISGP = Real estate: Available private residential properties - Landed, (# EOP, NSA)
  • HSQVRESNLDUQ.ISGP = Real estate: Vacant private residential properties - Non-landed

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper right search box on DataBuffet.com provide a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic.

About the dataset:

  • The distinction "landed" vs. "non-landed" indicates whether the dwelling is sold with land (e.g., a single-family house) or not (e.g., a condominium apartment).
  • Includes: All completed private residential units, i.e., private residential units issued with a Temporary Occupation Permit or a Certificate of Statutory Completion.
  • Excludes: Hostels, Housing and Development Board flats, tenement houses, parsonages, and Executive Condominiums.
