Abstract: The need for information about regionally differentiated price levels has been claimed by different statistics user groups. To answer these needs, the Federal Statistical Office of Germany is thinking about implementing currently conducted interregional price level comparisons in their program of price statistics. So the question of how to select the necessary price data for such a price index has become an important matter. Due to the very high costs of primary data collection, the willingness to use already existing data out of official and nonofficial statistics for the new interregional price level comparisons is high. Especially for real estate prices a multitude of commercial data collectors already exists. The aim of our article is to give an overview about potential data sources and to evaluate them by the strong requirements of official price statistics. First the article shows the general importance of the homogeneity of the selected items in the interregional price level comparison. Second the special requirements concerning data sources for housing prices are being discussed. For this purpose a system of 10 criteria is postulated that should preferably be fulfilled by the data source used to calculate interregional price index numbers. Later on, theses criteria are tested on the potential data sources presented in the article (195 words). Copyright Springer-Verlag 2010
