H P C Front Page Statistics Getting Out Of Date

Recommended Posts

I see several of the indexes have more recent releases than shown.

DCLG: http://www.communities.gov.uk/documents/statistics/pdf/1796637.pdf

Home.co: http://www.home.co.uk/asking_price_index/HAPIndex_DEC10.pdf

Rightmove: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/news/files/2010/12/december-2010.pdf

I also note that the Hometrack YoY is shown as 0.0%.

The actual YoY is -1.1%, as available on the following page: http://www.hometrack.co.uk/commentary-and-analysis/market-snapshot/index.cfm

Finally, I have noticed that the DCLG figures are usually shown with MoM - N/A.

In fact, DCLG do release a MoM figure, sometimes buried within the report.

I've sent an email to the link on the front page (Fubra?), but thought any passing forum mods might want to be aware.

This is all bearish data that we are missing the opportunity of passing on to any casual passers by HPC over Xmas...

When some of the surveys revise their figures with the next month's release, this is also not updated in the HPC tables. The Nationwide figures for both June and September were both originally +0.1% but later revised down to 0% flat. The table on this site has the old figures. Although we're talking about 0.1% here, the difference between a rise and flat is very significant. With the revisions, the Nationwide index has not risen at all for the last six months, although the HPC tables do not reflect this - big omission IMO.

AFAIK Fubra support will only be dealing with emergencies over the holidays so it may be a couple of days before it gets sorted. Mods here have no access to the other parts of the site.

Fair enough, thanks for the reply!

And Happy holidays all!
