Construction industry; productive hours in (non-)residential buildings


This table shows quarterly data of the number of productive hours per employee in residential and non-residential building. The number of productive hours is calculated by reducing the number of theoretically available hours with the number of non-productive hours due to holidays, sickness absence, strikes, frost and precipitation delays, etc. All figures are rounded off to the nearest 5 hours.

Data available from: 1st quarter of 1990.

Status of the figures:
Data of the four most recent quarters are provisional, the remainder are definite.

Changes as of July 27, 2020:
Figures of the second quarter 2020 have been added and figures from four quarters preceding may have been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
Statistics Netherlands usually publishes the first results six to eight weeks after the reporting period. After the definitive figures are published Statistics Netherlands only adapts the results if large adjustments or corrections are necessary.
