FDZ Data description: Regional Real Estate Price Indices for Germany (RWI-GEO-REDX) - Version 2: 2008-02/2019

RWI Datenbeschreibung

An important issue in the current German public and political discourse is the development of housing prices. Sharply increasing rents, shortage of living space in urban areas and rural exodus are some of the discussed problems. Despite its topicality, few data are available on the recent development of housing prices in Germany. To fill this gap, the RWI-GEO-REDX data (Klick/Schaffner/RWI 2019) set quantifies regional differences in house purchase and apartment rent prices on the level of districts (Kreise, NUTS 3-level) and municipalities (Gemeindeverband, LAU 1-level) as well as labor market areas defined by RWI (2018).
