House Price to Earnings Ratio

House price ratios provide an indicator for the affordability of housing, a major expenditure for most residents. Higher ratios indicate more expensive houses relative to earnings. The ratio is calculated by dividing the average value of property by the average annual earnings and relies on survey data for the earnings element and Land Registry sales data for the average house prices.
