From 2013 onwards the dwelling stock statistics are based on the national Dwelling Register. The Dwelling Register is administrated by the National Land Survey and updated by the municipalities and includes all dwellings in the country. The dwelling stock is presented in the Statistical Database by type of building, period of construction, type of ownership, tenure and size (residential area). The regional breakdown is on the national, county and municipal levels. The number of dwellings in special housing is also presented.
