The National Board of Housing, Building and Planning administrates the Housing Market Survey, analyses the municipalities' responses and publishes analyses and open data from the survey.
The purpose of the Housing Market Survey (the "BME") is to contribute to the continuous monitoring of the development of the housing market and to track trends and tendencies relating to its future development.
The survey consists of the municipalities' assessments of various issues and thus provides a cohesive picture of the housing market of the entire country.
Data collection takes place in cooperation with the county administrative boards, which liaise with the municipalities and quality-assure the municipalities' responses. The county administrative boards also contribute their assessments and views concerning the results from their own county. Even if not all municipalities answer all parts of the survey, the Housing Market Survey is unique. No other captures the situation in the municipalities in the same way.
