The Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland
Barrington Lecture: Price Size and Density
Dr. Paul Kilgarriff, of the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research
4.30pm on Thursday January 27th
The current discussions and analysis around housing in Ireland lack a detailed analysis of the relationship between house size and prices in Ireland. Related to house size is the density of an area. In this paper I contribute a measure of price per square metre (ppsm) for housing. Using web-scraped data a kriging methodology is used to interpolate a ppsm at the Small Area level for Dublin and its commuter area. Results show that the highest ppsm is located around the city centre.
