OOH (Owner-Occupied Housing)

The costs incurred by owners who occupy their homes (Owner-Occupied Housing) which are a significant part of the household-owner’s budget. For the moment these expenses are not included in the Luxembourg consumer price index (NCPI and HICP). Currently, only rent (for houses, apartments and garages) is included in the reference basket of the index. A pilot project by Eurostat aims to fill this gap and to establish an index based on these costs.
