Table description


This table shows the input price indices of the costs of labour, materials and equipment for civil engineering works (in Dutch: Grond-, weg- en waterbouw (GWW)). There are ten areas within civil engineering. These areas are based on the standard Classification Products to Activity. For each area a series is calculated based on the price developments of various cost components of which the product to be realised -in this case a civil engineering project- is constructed. The price index for the total of civil engineering is a weighted average of the eight areas. The published price indices of civil engineering are based on the average price level of the month in question. Changes in the overall costs and 'profit and risks' are not taken into account.
Changes compared with twelve months previously are also published for all indices.

Data available from:
The input price indices in this series are available from January 2012 on.

Status of the figures:
Index figures up to 2021 are definite. Other index figures are provisional.
The period the price indices remain provisional depends on the moment that the collectively negotiated (Cao) wage rates for the construction industry are definite. This period can vary from 4 to about 16 months after the period under review.

Changes as of August 30th 2022:
The figures of July 2022 are added to the table.
Due to an adjustment in the source information, the index figure for April 2020 in subseries 4212b Railways; Exploitation/Maintenance is revised with 0.1 index point.

When will new figures be published?
Provisional figures for October 2022 will be published at the end of November 2022.

Description topics

Input price indices
An index is the ratio between the value of a variable in a given period and the value of that variable in a chosen fixed (reference) period.

In this table the variable is the price trends in civil engineering. This is a weighted average of price movements of the components wages, materials and equipment (tools and machinery).
