Discontinued Data: Ireland subnational - Housing statistics - Partial
Monday, 29 Oct 2018 08:13 ET
By Megan McGee
October 2018 -- The source has terminated these residential real estate datasets: mortgage loan approvals and payments (quarterly); average house prices (quarterly); housing completions (monthly and quarterly). (32 monthly series 1975 to 2018; 91 quarterly series 1974 to 2017; discontinued.)

The source wrote (citation):

[...] the Department [of Housing, Planning and Local Government] has agreed that ESB Networks [operator of the Irish electrical grid] no longer needs to supply the monthly [electrical] connections dataset to the [DHPLG] as the dataset being supplied to the  [Central Statistics Office] is more detailed. The CSO published a new measure of New Dwelling Completions on June 14th 2018. This release is available in full on the CSO website. The CSO also publish a range of other statistics in the Construction domain.

In response, we have:

  1. Archived the quarterly predecessors (as early as 1974Q1 to 2017Q1) by marking metadata as discontinued and segregating in the catalog.
  2. Archived the monthly predecessors (as early as January 1975 to February 2018) in the same way.

Dataset properties:

  • Measurements:
    • Unitary counts (#)
    • Unitary euros (EUR)

  • Adjustments:
    • Not seasonally adjusted (NSA)
    • Seasonally adjusted (SA)

1. Residential mortgage loan data resides in the historical catalog (Ireland » Banking » Discontinued » Mortgage loans) and include, for example:

  • HSLLORTUQ.IIRL = [DISCONTINUED] Loan Payments: Total, (Mil. EUR, NSA)
  • HSQLNSNUQ.IIRL = [DISCONTINUED] Loan Approvals: New houses, (#, NSA)

As a substitute, see for example:

  • MBLALNHHHNUM.IIRL = New loans to households for house purchase, (Mil. EUR, NSA)
  • MBLALNHHHSUM.IIRL = Outstanding loans to households for house purchase, (Mil. EUR, NSA)

2. House sales prices (Ireland » Real Estate » Residential » Prices » Discontinued » Average price of houses) include:

  • HSLHPNAPTUQ.IIRL    = [DISCONTINUED] House prices - New apartments, (EUR, NSA)
  • HSLHPNTUQ.IIRL_25CO = [DISCONTINUED] New house prices, (EUR, NSA) - for Aggregate of Cork and Cork City

There is no direct substitute at this time.

3. Housing completions (Ireland » Real Estate » Residential » Stage of construction » Completions » Discontinued » Monthly | Quarterly) include:

  • HSQCMPAM.IIRL      = [DISCONTINUED] Residential construction: Housing Completions - Total, (#, SAAR)
  • HSQCMPUQ.IIRL_1101 = [DISCONTINUED] New dwelling completions, (#, NSA) - for Cavan county

There is no direct substitute in Data Buffet at this time.

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