Construction; value added, index 2015=100 and changes


The output indicator on construction reflects the volume development of the value added (basic prices) in the sector construction according to the Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities 2008 (SIC 41, 42 and 43). Monthly figures of construction are made consistent with figures of quarterly accounts when these are available. Monthly figures are also corrected for price changes. When the last month of a quarter is published, the second estimate of quarterly accounts figures of the national accounts are not yet available. Therefore, figures of value added of construction in the table can differ from value added figures of national accounts. Subjects: Volume changes, compared to the same period of the previous year and volume index figures, base year 2015=100.
