Dwellings refer to an apartment intended to be used as a dwelling regardless of the type of house in which it is situated. Dwellings in one- or two-dwelling buildings are therefore also defined as apartments. The difference in the dwelling stock between two years does not consist only of new construction. The dwelling stock is a register-based product on the data in the dwelling register. The register is being updated by the municipalities responsible for the updating with help of information from the countrys property owners. Both newly built and existing apartments, which previously formed a loss in the register, are registered on a continuous basis. In addition, corrections and completions of previously incorrect data are made and due to changes of the existing dwelling stock, eg. through rebuilding and demolition. Besides, there is a certain lag in the registration of newly built apartments, especially the past year.
