User Cost Estimates for Dwelling Services

3rd ICP 2011 Technical Advisory Group Meeting at the OECD, Paris

 10, 11 June 2010


Problem of expenditure weights
Problem of Expenditure Weights

  • SNA suggests that rents of owner-occupiers should be imputed using rents actually paid for comparable dwellings

  • In many countries there are few dwellings for rent

    • Not representative of the dwelling stock

    • Only available in the capital

    • Mostly rented by expatriates

    • Traditional – own-built - dwellings rarely rented


User cost
User cost

  • User cost is an alternative to the SNA method

  • User cost simulates rents by adding up the costs of renting a dwelling

  • Costs are:

    • Repairs and maintenance

    • Insurance

    • Taxes on dwellings

    • Consumption of fixed capital

    • Operating surplus


Stock of dwellings
Stock of dwellings

  • Consumption of fixed capital and operating surplus require an estimate of the stock of dwellings at current market price

  • Perpetual Inventory Method

  • Short-cut method

    • Number of dwellings by type of dwelling

    • Price of new dwellings

      • Half of new price assuming no growth in housing stock

      • Adjustment fort growth in housing stock


Training for user cost
Training for User Cost

  • OECD-EFTA Project in West Balkans

    • Bosnia, Skrpska, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia, Montenegro, Albania

  • For expenditure weights and GDP

  • Three workshops:

    • 1 Introduce method

    • 2 Review preliminary estimates

    • 3 Finalise results

  • Combine with “exhaustiveness” and estimation of expenditure weights
