In these statistics, the Bangkok Metropolitan Region (literally, "Bangkok and environs") is a political definition comprising six provinces: Bangkok itself, plus Nakhon Pathom, Nonthanburi, Pathum Thani, Samut Prakan, and Samut Sakhon.

Index 2011=100

The four indicators are now categorized as the residential property price index (RPPI) and land price index (LPI).

Index 2009=100

This set of house price indices comprises four indicators: single detached house with land, town house with land, condominium, and land.

The indexes 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 indexes were compiled by using rolling window and time dummy hedonic regressions method (3-month moving average), controlling four housing characteristics (age, stories, entrepreneur, and distance to metropolitan transportation services such as the Skytrain, the underground and expressway). The land price index has been constructed by stratification with monthly weight (3-month moving average).

Index 1991=100

They're based on the Government Housing Bank (GHB) appraisal database. GHB accounts for nearly 40% of total housing loans. The indexes 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.
