process of developing such an index and the influence of institutional context on these decisions. The basis of the index is a hedonic model re-estimated quarterly
using a rolling window approach. Index values are generated using Laspeyres (base-period) weights and defining a standard property as semi-detached with
median structural characteristics. The paper describes the additional information reported to users (alongside the index values) including changes over
different periods, price levels and the volume of transactions. Analysis of results support the development of local house price indices and confirm that
house price dynamics in the Aberdeen housing market area are distinct from those estimated for broader geographical areas.
