Table description


This table presents information about developments in domestic turnover of the construction industry (SIC 2008 section F). The data can be divided by a number of branches according to Statistics Netherlands' Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities 2008 (SIC 2008) and by two size classes. The results are expressed in terms of indices with base year 2015. Changes on the same period in the previous year are also published.

Data available from: January 2005.

Status of the figures:
The figures of 2021 are provisional and the figures from the preceding periods are definite.

Changes as of November 16, 2021:
Figures of September 2021 and the third quarter have been added. The figures of July and August 2021 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. Up to 75 days after the quarter, figures may be adjusted as increased response becomes available. After that the figures will not be changed. Five months after the reporting year, all late response is used to compile the definite figures, for all months in the reporting year. Until that point, figures are provisional. After that, figures are definite.

Once definite figures have been published, Statistics Netherlands only adjusts them if significant corrections are necessary.

Description topics

Turnover indices
An index compares the value of a variable (e.g. turnover) in a certain period with the value of the same variable in the base period. The average index of this base period is 100.

Turnover is defined as the value of sales of goods and services to third parties, VAT excluded. Turnover includes main activity as well as secondary activities. Third parties are consumers and enterprises not belonging to (the Dutch part of) the own group of companies.
Turnover year-on-year change
Change in turnover indicates the growth rate with respect to the same period of the previous year as a percentage. Statistics Netherlands calculates this on the basis of non-rounded figures.

Turnover is defined as the value of sales of goods and services to third parties, VAT excluded. Turnover includes the main activity as well as secondary activities. Third parties are consumers and enterprises not belonging to (the Dutch part of) the own group of companies.
