NOTES ON METHODOLOGY

Sources and methods of data collection

Data on construction are presented, which are collected through reporting method by applying the Annual Report on Demolished Building Containing Dwellings and on Conversion into Non-Residential Area (GRAĐ-71 form).

Coverage and comparability

The Annual Report on Demolished Buildings Containing Dwellings and on Conversion into Non-Residential Area is collected from the administration bodies competent for construction affairs in major cities, the City of Zagreb and counties as well as from the State Directorate – Building Inspection Sector, the Ministry of Physical Planning, Construction and State Assets, and Central State Office for Reconstruction and Housing on the basis of the following documents:

- Project for demolition of buildings;

- Building permit by which the demolition of previously constructed building (with one or more dwellings) is planned in order to build a substitute building;

- Reconstruction licenses for the conversion of existing residential areas into non-residential ones or for merging of two or more dwellings into one;

- Decisions of the building inspection by which investors or owners are ordered to demolish constructed buildings with one or more dwellings;

- Other documents related to the demolition of buildings with dwellings (e.g., demolition because of natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, landslides, fire and other).

The report is filled in only for an entirely demolished building containing one or more completed dwellings. Consequently, damaged buildings intended for repairing and buildings without any completed dwelling are not included.

Definitions

Useful floor area (m2) is the floor surface of a dwelling measured inside the dwelling walls.

Dwelling has an installation for water supply when at least one room in the dwelling has water pipes, no matter whether or not they are connected to the public water supply system or private facilities.

Dwelling has an installation for sewage when at least one room in the dwelling has waste pipe, leading outside the building, no matter whether or not they are connected to the public sewage disposal plant or private facility for waste water (septic tank, cesspool etc.) or waste water is emptied directly to the environment (an open ditch, a river, a pit, a sea).
