Table description


This table shows the value (expressed in building costs) of the construction of building projects expected shortly. It also shows the value of the actually realised monthly production of building projects. The figures relate to building projects with building costs of 50 thousand euro or more. The total building costs are broken down into building costs by building phase and by type of building.

Data available from: January 2015.

Status of the figures:
Figures of the latest 12 months are provisional.
Municipalities with non-response are estimated. The later received response of municipalities over previous periods have been processed in the figures of the month in which the building permit was granted. As a result, figures about the same month may vary over time. Twelve months after publication the provisional figures become definite.

Changes as of December 24, 2021:
The figures of October 2021 have been added and the figures of previous 12 months and 4 quarters may have been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
The new figures will be published approximately 2 months after the reporting month. Figures for the same report month a year earlier then become final.
