Monitoring frequency: annual
The count of monuments and historic buildings is based on the Register of Monuments and Historic Buildings kept by the Cultural Heritage Agency. Every year a new count is added for the previous year, based on the situation at 31 December.
The following principles apply:
- The count is based on absolute numbers of monuments and historic buildings as recorded in the Register of Monuments and Historic Buildings. Individual monuments are counted, not complexes.
- The year of entry in the land registry is regarded as the year of listing.
- The count applies only to monuments and historic buildings whose listing procedure has been completed. Monuments and historic buildings that have been awarded provisional protection pending completion of the procedure are not counted.
