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. The years 1991–2012 in this table are recalculated and adapted to the national dwelling register used to the housing stock from 2013. The data for 1990 comes from the population and housing census 1990. For the years 1991–2013 annual updates of changes through new construction, rebuilding, demolition and remodeling have been calculated. These calculated figures for 2013 have been compared with the dwelling register corresponding data for 2013. The difference that then arises has been spread by 1/22 parts per year for the years 1991–2012 with the assumption that the differences occurred continuously during the time period. Most dwellings reported as special and other housing from 2013 and onwards were previously included in the category of multi-dwelling buildings.
