Nationwide House Prices measure a change in value caused by inflation using a statistical method to construct an 'average house'. Using the vast majority of Nationwide's sample of mortgage data, the index calculates the price of the 'average house' from a set of features. The 'average house' represents the average price of a group of '100 properties', each with a set of 10 representative features (property type, whether it is new, region, neighbourhood characteristics at local and parliamentary constituency level, internal floor size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, type of garage, and central heating status). This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The index measures consumers' opinions by combining their answers to nine questions on the economic situation of the country, the economic situation of the family regarding employment, savings, purchase of durable goods and their financial situation.

A simple arithmetic average of the answers is then computed. The indicator is presented as an index. The sample is selected from the population aged 18 years and over.
