The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Home Price Indices are the leading measures of U.S. residential real estate prices, tracking changes in the value of residential real estate both nationally as well as in 20 metropolitan regions. These indices are repeat-sales house price indices for the United States. There are multiple Case–Shiller home price indices: A national home price index, a 20-city composite index, a 10-city composite index, and twenty individual metro area indices. These indices are calculated and kept monthly by Standard & Poor’s, with data points calculated for the time period of January 1987 through the present.
These Indices are based on original work by economists Karl Case and Robert Shiller, in which their team calculated the home price index back to 1890; that index is normalized as such that 1890 has a value of 100.
