Note

Because the RPPI is based on Revenue stamp duty returns, which have a 44 day submission deadline, only a fraction of the two most recent months' residential property transactions are available for index compilation the following month. This means that the RPPI for the latest two months is provisional and subject to revision. See background notes.
