Production on buildings; price index 2015=100


This table provides information on price developments in the construction industry. Data were calculated by Statistic Netherlands (CBS) and are based on building permits with a value of 50 thousand euros or more issued by municipal authorities, and the reported construction costs as stated in the permits. On the basis of these building permits and the construction time, construction output is calculated by means of average waiting times prior to the start of the construction activities.
Price indices listed in the table are used to eliminate the effect of price changes on the construction output. Therefore, the price index can be used to as a deflator to calculate volume developments in the building sector.
Price indices are calculated for 2 sections (Construction of new buildings and Other buildings) and 3 sectors (dwellings, buildings for the private sector and buildings for the (semi-)public or non-commercial sector).

Data available from: 1st quarter 2015

When will new figures become available?
Provisional figures for the second quarter of 2020 will be released in August 2020.
