Unknown.

Index 1991=100

They're based on the Government Housing Bank (GHB) appraisal database. GHB accounts for nearly 40% of total housing loans. The indices are limited in that GHB loans comprise mostly the low-to-medium end of the housing market, and are concentrated on the periphery of central Bangkok and vicinity.

This set of house price indices comprises four indictors as follow; single detached house with land, town house with land, condominium, and land. The indices were calculated from 17 commercial banks’ mortgage loan in Bangkok and vicinities (Bangkok, Samut Prakan, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Nakhon Pathom and Samut Sakhon). Single detached house with land, town house with land and condominium price indices were compiled by using rolling window and time dummy hedonic regressions method (3-month moving average), controlling 4 housing characteristics (age, storey, entrepreneur and distance to metropolitan transportation services such as the sky train, the underground and express way). Meanwhile, land price index has been constructed by Stratification method with monthly weight (3-month moving average).
