Table description


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 April 26, 2022:
The figures of the first quarter of 2022 have been added.
