Peru does not publish house price statistics, and generally its statistics are weak. The Ministerio de Econom'a y Finanzas has basic statistics on production, prices, interest rates, international reserves and the balance of payments. There are financial statistics at the Banco Central de Reserva del Peru. The Instituto Nacional de Estadistica e Informatica produces data, but not on-line time-series.
