The team behind the Teranet-National Bank House Price™ Index is pleased to announce that effective September 20, 2022 we will be releasing a new series of unsmoothed indices. These unsmoothed indices will be offered in addition to the current smoothed indices released on a monthly basis. Previously published indices were smoothed to represent the average changes of the raw index within the last three months.
Given the unusually rapid changes in interest rates, the unsmoothed version of our price measures will allow for earlier detection of changes in market conditions. The provision of the unsmoothed version of the Teranet-National Bank indices will also allow users to adjust the data to their specific needs.
After the monthly release on September 20, 2022 you will notice a few changes to the website. Any graphs or charts used throughout the website will now reference the unsmoothed index. The smoothed index values will still be available when you download the data file, and you will notice the addition of a new column that includes the unsmoothed index value.
If you have any questions about the new unsmoothed index, please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
