Danish news release for construction cost index for residential buildings.
Publications only in Danish.
The statistics are published in the StatBank in the following tables:

Historical statistics can be found here: - BYG4: Construction cost index for residential buildings by main index, sub index, kind, unit and time (quarterly, 1986Q4-2015Q4) - BYG5: Construction cost index for residential buildings by main index, sub index, kind, unit and time (yearly, 1987-2015)
Basis material is stored in a register. The system for calculating the indices is constructed so that it is possible to produce special indices. The basis in the system is the BC/SfB-Building Board, and within the framework of this Board there are vast opportunities of constructing special customised indices: Examples are:
- Index for a specific building part
- Index for one of the three buildings
- Index for other kinds of buildings, i.e. office buildings and universities
The Construction Cost Index for Residential Buildings is transmitted to Eurostat on a quarterly basis in accordance with EU Council regulations (EC) 1165/98 of May 19th. 1998, and 588/2001 of May 26th, 2001. Subsequently, there have been various regulations that have further introduced new aspects, which are now being merged and replaced by Regulation (EU) 2019/2152 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 November 2019.
