In regards to the index

In intervals, with many upscale lodge transactions in costly cities akin to London or Paris, such an index will measure to document unusually excessive ranges of common transaction costs. Within the given instance, that is nevertheless largely due to the particular traits of the transaction pattern in that interval, and never essentially due to the overall lodge transaction worth degree in that 12 months. Observe that the latter must be the last word goal of a well-constructed index. The hedonic regression strategy circumvents this drawback by explicitly making an allowance for the traits of all inns offered in a given 12 months. Particularly, EHL’s European Resort Transaction Worth Index takes into consideration 10 totally different hedonic components, starting from variables capturing a lodge’s location, constructing high quality and measurement, to its working construction.
