The 'Residential property Price Indices and related housing indicators' dataset mainly contains quarterly statistics and related statistical methodological information for the 35 OECD member countries and for some non-member countries.

This dataset focuses on comparable series for 3 target RPPI indicators:
1) RPPI - Sales of newly-built and existing dwellings, all types of dwellings, whole country;
2) RPPI - Sales of newly-built dwellings, all types of dwellings, whole country and;
3) RPPI - Sales of existing dwellings, all types of dwellings, whole country.
When none of these indicators was available, another one was selected. This is particularly true for Australia, Chile, Korea, Switzerland and the United States.

Data are available at a quarterly frequency for all the countries. For Canada, Chile, Israel, Japan, Korea and Turkey monthly data are also available.

Indicators have been prepared by national statistical agencies primarily to meet the requirements of users within their own country. In most instances, the indicators are compiled in accordance with international statistical guidelines and recommendations. However, national practices may depart from these guidelines, which may alter the international comparability of RPPIs and housing transactions indicators. These potential departures are documented in the metadata for the relevant countries.
In the future, this dataset will be complemented with other indicators that are useful for the economic analysis of the housing market, such as Housing structural indicators (Stock of dwellings, Type of tenure, Occupancy status) and Construction indicators (Building permits, Housing starts, Housing completions and Production in construction).

Key statistical concept
International guidelines for the compilation of RPPIs are given in the Handbook on Residential Price Property Indices which was published in 2013 http://www.oecd.org/publications/handbook-on-residential-property-price-indices-9789264197183-en.htm
